So reliable and easy to use
Nov 12, 2017
Booking on line was very easy. As was having the receipt scanned to receive our ticket. The Hop-on Hop-off bus is a great way to see Palermo.

Hat alles gut geklappt, die Tickets habe ich während der Taxifahrt gebucht. Nur die Busstation zu finden war etwas versteckt. Wir haben italienische Touristen gefragt die uns echt super geholfen haben. Danach war alles easy. Wer nur 1 Tag in Palermo ist, sollte diese Tour machen, man erläuft es einfach nicht, bei Hitze um die 36 Grad schon gleich dreimal nicht. Wir würden es in jeder größeren Stadt machen.
