We used all three routes and learned a lot. The buses drove punctually and regularly. On the green route there was no information about Band, but from a guide. However, we could only understand very little from the first guide, as they spoke very quickly and with an accent. This is not easy for foreign guests. The second guide tried very hard and it worked out better.

If you are on a cruise you will have to take a city bus into town to get on the bus. Right outside the port, across the street and takes about 20 minutes. If you buy the pass with the 3 tours you can take the blue tour back to the ship as it stops at the port.
