We bought a two-day-ticket including bus and boat. The audio on the bus was available in many languages, but was badly syncronized so you never really knew where to look. The stops weren't advertised in any way, so it was hard to know where to...More

Audio on city tour and river tour is garbage. It's not synced at all. It's about this place/building but where, left or right, they forget to mention which side to look at. May as well take local buses. Did two day hop on/off but needs...More
