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.
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.
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.
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.
Unfortunately this tour was very disappointing but not because of Viator. We had two families surrounding us on top deck who were so loud we could not hear anything from our earbuds. We chose the historical part of the city which is so beautiful.
Enjoyed the tour and it was convenient to the ship.I was there more than 30 years ago and did not recognize much. Time changes things for sure.
