It was great to do to see the city and it’s history. It makes it easier to see what sites to stop and hop off. Bus was clean and friendly driver.

The service was wonderful, always on time, we had a guy that spoke 5 languages, Pablo, he was so helpful an nice. I highly recommend this service

Pick up the physical cards ahead of time. Most of the bus drivers did not recognize the digital card.

Excellent way to get to know the city and the whole island by visiting all the museums.

Excellent for cold days and going to museums, galleries or pools to relax.
