We enjoyed our recent one hour tour using this convenient 7 stop service. We visited the Old Fortress on route and spent some time walking through the main restaurant and shopping area. Returning to the terminal was also very straightforward. A good overview.

Review of Bus
August 04, 2019
It was well worth the money. It brought to the main attractions and bus's came regularly. The only bad thing was it took awhile at each stop because of the # of people boarding and un-boarding.
