Paid £21 for the hop on bus well worth the money missed the walking tour shame it was only once a day as we were on a cruise didn’t bother with the boat tour but great value for money they was help at a lot of the stops you cannot use the code on your phone you have to get it printed in the hop on shop that’s the only drawback. The talk wasn’t the best having used this service in Vienna the recording wasn’t as good.

Il y’a des arrêts partout, tout le personnel est au taquet et super serviable ! Nous avions les billets sur l’appli et devions récupérer les tickets au bureau principal, pourtant on a laissé monter dans le bus et descendre à l’arrêt en question et une fois sur place nous avons eu l’agréable surprise, d’avoir un tour en bateau sur le Danube en prime je vous conseille d’y aller pour 19h en été c’est super !
