This is a very good way to visit and learn about important attractions in a city; cars circulate every 20 to 30 minutes to help tourists reach the attractions, and there are multi-language audio guides with headphones. The driver is also kind and friendly and answers all questions

The experience would have been better if there would have been a screen in the bus which would inform of the next sight. There were also many sights which did not have any audio presentation at all.
