Drivers were very friendly and offered tips on where to eat. They all made the effort to communicate with me in English and always with a nice smile! Route is perfect and despite seeming small, you end up staying at least an hour on a few different stops such as Torre Eiffel. If you want to go up, I would recommend getting tickets in advance as waiting line was long!

That you could do a whole circuits before you hop on and off the bus to where you want to be. Just it was bad timing with the rugby world cup starting that day so it was a huge traffic jam and couldn't get to where I wanted on the bus

Great route and commentary. We got off to visit the sights and caught the bus later. Also did the river cruise which was great

The bus didn't make the stops shown on the map and passengers weren't notified until the stop was being missed which left no time for planning. Also it would have been nice to know which points of interest were close to each.

It ran alone flawlessly, everyone could take headphones and the brochure about the driving route. The narrations (possible in 6 languages) were very informative and music played between the waiting time. Highly recommended !!!
