    Good tour of Valencia especially if you have time to take the 2 routes - about 3 hours. Closest stop to cruise ship port exit about 1 mile walk. Must take shuttle between cruise ships and port exit

    The audio headsets on the bus did not work most of the seats. Had to move around and then the bus noise was too loud for anyone to hear the audio.

    The bus tour and aquarium were really good. The only problem, which was really annoying, was that when we presented our excursion ticket to the Hop on HOp off bus, he printed us two receipts and kept the Viator printout. We assumed the receipts/tickets he gave us were enough since it said right on it about the aquarium. When we got to the aquarium, the ticket booth said she had never heard of such thing. We had to ask her supervisor to use their internet to reprint our Vouchers. Wasted about an hour of our aquarium time to do this.
