On top of the hop-on hop-off bus which was Very complete because of the 2 guides present on bus (adding to the recorded comments) was a walking tour of the old town. Each guide was walking with his half of the group and taking us thru the old town. They were very knowledgeable of their city.
This tour was very nicely done. Good staff.
This was a nice way to see the city & get off & on at your leisure wherever you wanted to OR not.

The sight seeing bus was a easy way and fast to see the city. The guide that took us through the old city did a good job.
