The bus many colours where right at the port. Once we were on the right colour and explained the map and system, it was great. Again if you like crowds, this is a great place to be bumper to bumper with people. We were there in September 30 plus Celsius. I understand it is much hotter in July and August. This was a great way to get around and do the things you wish. Well organized and ran smoothly.

The Hop On Hop Off bus worked great for us. The pickup was right outside the port. It was so easy to use and stopped at all the sites we wanted to see.
