We had to get off terminating buses twice in an hour, a bus broke down and we had to wait over an hour in the heat for another one to come and jump start it. No air conditioning either. Go with the green bus option with the same route at half the price!! Tried to contact

Was a great way to get over view of sites. We did one complete circuit on bus and got information and then walked between sights as they are fairly close. Would recommend as informative and economical way to see sites in Palermo.

It’s a great way to see the city. I ride them in almost all the cities I visit. It’s a great way to see an overview of the city to get your bearings. They are very similar in most places, so it is a comfortable feeling knowing what to do.

The buses were on time and the itinerary was covered as advertised with due consideration to those wanting to switch from one route to the other. Still ended up doing quite a bit of walking to visit sites in the Quattro Canti area which is partly pedestrianised.
