Went on the open top bus tour and it was good. Made some stops on the way around the route. Downside was that the lack of commentary on the bus, but apart from that, a good experience.

The tour was pretty typical as a hop on, hop off tour...very good to get a feel for the town and where everything is. They are pretty reliable and show up consistently. It stops at all the main attractions in town.

Hi Anton, I'm not sure you will have to find a tourist information Centre. We just went on sightseeing bus whilst visiting for the day on our cruise stop in this beautiful town. Be careful of locals and scams.
