I always try to take bus tours when I visit a city, not just to see the sites but also to understand the macro layout of the city. This tour failed on every level. Even before the tour began things started off badly. We were...More

Sent to a bus with roof after waiting 30 minutes in one without. Paid 15 euro, price is 5 euro for locals, I got 3 tickets marked 5 euro on same paper! Terrible sound, loud italian guiding on speakers kill the other languages on headphones.

After initially changing busses, we were treated to a very quiet English commentary through earphones, blasted over by native language commentary over the main speakers. After 10 minutes the headphone system packed up. I informed the driver who fiddled with the controls & the commentary...More

Near the Cathedral I contacted the guy of the bus. He offered us the downtown tour for €5 and the Acicastello e Acitrezza tour for €15. We paid for the €15 tour. We took two buses for the same tour and we never went out...More
