The bus travelling during the city was quite interesting, the buses were on time in each stop in every 30 min. The problems occur if you pay for entrance for.the top of the.city and you do not know English, because the stuff don*t speak very good .So be careful,if you chose the option.to the top of the Furnichlar,stop 4 ,you have to show in the entrances your bracelet and be sure you take a validation of the .ticket from the entrance.This is important, no one told us that,so we.have to pay twice for entrance.

we booked a ticket including cable car. unfortunately the cable car was closed. we got easily a refund for the cable car.

Good for an overview of the city. However, there is a certain delay between the information and where it is going.

Good guidance, great food and entertaining program
