We usually use the local tour bus as a way of getting an overall view of a new city. There is always a trade off between using the bus commentary and buying a decent map. In this case, stick to the map: the sights in...More

Disgraceful! 20 minutes waiting on an empty bus then thrown off after paying. I had a receipt but they said it was for a 10 seater cramped van - utter rubbish. So, they park the bus, give occasional tours when it suits them but mostly...More

Sent to a bus with roof after waiting 30 minutes in one without. Paid 15 euro, price is 5 euro for locals, I got 3 tickets marked 5 euro on same paper! Terrible sound, loud italian guiding on speakers kill the other languages on headphones.

Not really bad and not really the best but has to be considered that the price is convenient. They depart from main Duomo square and reach the sea side till to Acicastello. Tour is anyway funny my kids loved it. Time is about +/- 2h.

We are typically fans of hop on hop off busses for an overview of a city we are new to. This one is the shortest trip on a borderline bus. Not real clean, audio doesn’t work that well etc. but, for 5 euros who cares....More

Oh god, I wish I read the reviews before hand. This was awful! It lasted almost 2 hours and we saw nothing worth mentioning. Thise 2 hours would be much better spent walking up and down Etna street and Piazza Duomo. You get earphones for...More
