Be aware every stop in near to the attractions but there is often still afair way to walk to get to them. Excellent staff very helpful and will always point you in the right direction.

Good: covered city well; regular arrivals; very friendly staff happy to give plenty of advice. Not so good: some of the headphone sockets were broken, no problem for us off season (February) as plenty of seats available but would be an issue if bus full. Would be nice to have perhaps 1 more stop added in on each of the 3 routes. Purple route sometimes covering only part of the advertised journey.

Very good way to travel between attractions if you want to rest and hear historical details. Travel may take longer than you expect due to traffic congestion, and we travelled off season in February. I can’t imagine how busy it would be in the summer. I would use this service again.
