The Hop-on Hop-off bus tour was excellent with an informative commentary. This was our second visit to Palermo but our first experience of the bus tour. The tour allowed us to see some of the sights that we missed on our first visit and we enjoyed it very much. We would highly recommend the tour and we all felt it was well worth the money.

Reviewed by: Giuseppina C, August 2014

The hop on hop off bus tour is very easily reached by foot from the port. Its 15 minute walk. The buses are timely and clean. The audio is very informative on the many landmarks and history of this city. I did both routes which are very different. I would recommend if you have the time to do both - ( with perhaps a gelato in between).
