    Due to the late cancellation by the cruise company because of bad weather, we were unable to cancel this for a refund. Makes be rethink booking with Viator in advance when one can just board a bus on day of for a bit less.

    This was an awful excursion from the ship. The shuttle bus from the port dropped us off at an out of the way place and we had no idea where to find the HOHO bus. We did finally find a stop and rode the route, but we missed seeing the Old Town which other ship guests were raving about. The sound system was horrible and although it was in English, it was difficult to hear and understand. Don't recommend doing this in Valencia.

    The Tourist Red Bus is one of the best ways to see the town and get off at any attraction where they stop. They are a little slower than other cities that I have been in Europe but it is not that bad.

    Very good excusion, however, locating the initial bus stop was a problem allot time wasted, suggestion since most persons have google maps is to have waypoints or markers appear, or when printed tickets on printer at house provide the great maps you hand out so people can see from a birds eye view of the stops, and intersecting streets to make it easier on persons trying to locate your buses.

    Buses older then previous cities visited. Be careful to note which line - red or blue - you are riding. Beautiful city with both old and new architecture. Driver on red line exceptionally helpful. Inexpensice way to have city overview.

    Gave us a great overview in a short time lovely place.

    Very nice tour. Quick as Valencia is not that big but a great start to visiting this beautiful city.

  • 22-Nov-2017

    This was a waste of our time and money. We tried several busses and none of them had sound systems that were clear. The words were garbled and not enough volume to even hear the garbled words. After 3 busses, we got off, wandered on our own, and took a taxi back to the ship.

  • 21-Nov-2017

    Not much of a loop. Would have been better to take a taxi to the city center (which we had to do anyway since the port bus stop isn't as near the cruise ship as the tour write up made it out to be) and stay/walk around that area.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the hop on hop off tour. Great way to get an overview of the city and then go back to your favorite places. We would recommend it to anyone going to Valancia.
