It took about forty minutes to move about a quarter of a mile, because it stopped for nineteen minutes in front of the Bank of Santander. We got off the bus at the palace and walked back to our flat. This may be the best option for some people but not for us.

Took the bus yesterday with friends an are totally disappointed. Wait times over 30 minutes while the driver waits for passengers and sells tickets on the sidewalk. DO NOT recommend, period. Better take public bus. All public buses pass in front of Cathedral, are quick and inexpensive. DO NOT take the red bus!!!!!!

Took the bus today and wait time is in excess of 45 minutes. Not worth the money. You are better off taking public transportation. Tons of excuses but traffic was light today. The bus stops and you have a long wait until they sell tickets on the sidewalk. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

We generally like the open top bus tours as a way to orientate ourselves in a new city. This one was unfortunately not as good as others we have experienced. The audio content provided was interesting and informative however there was not enough of it primarily because the bus spent very long periods of time waiting at several of the bus stops on the route. I guess if you knew where the delays were going to be then you could hop off but this was certainly not clear to us and we really just wanted to do the whole tour.
