The ease of taking the bus along the route. Of course the explanation in several languages is basic to understand the routes, Congratulations!

We see many interesting points of the city. Sometimes the audio guide describes something, but you're not quite there. It does, however, give us some interesting historical information.

We liked the routes and the kindness of the drivers. We enjoyed the time it lasted we were able to enjoy the whole day. We did not like that a lot of the places to plug in the headphones were not working at all. We had to change seats several times.

Was able to see a lot, too bad with that nice sun people wanted the roof closed. Whole reason you take that bus is the open roof.

The bus runs frequently enough to get on and off, and takes long enough at each stop to allow time for those who don't want to get off to continue their trip.
