I am very satisfy with tours. I got two days ticket. Busses were clear, on each stop on time and crew very friendly and helpful. I think this is the best way how to see city when you have very limited time.

We did the red line bus and was interesting tour, not many stops worth getting off. SAB stop is probably the best. The bromfontain markets close at 3 is the only thing to consider,
