    Very useful for those who want to see the points and interests of the city without walking far and wide. Apart from the initial misunderstanding (meeting point in the wrong app) and the difficulty in finding your own language for the audio guide (the channels indicated for the different languages did not coincide with the actual channels for the different languages, some channels were not heard ), the tour was enjoyable, the driver helpful. Unfortunately, a misunderstanding about the time of passage of the bus made us waste some time, but nothing irreparable, for a tour that was overall pleasant.

    We were on the first start in order to make the most of our day. The circuit has been modified due to the installation of a fair, we have not been informed. We waited over an hour. By contacting the organization, we were assured that we were at the meeting point. Still not seeing a bus, we went up the circuit to finally wait for it at number 3 of the circuit, more than 2 hours later. This lack of information and signage however spoiled our excursion.

    The circuit is interesting, we see the main points of interest. It's better if you know the city a little to choose your stops. I recommend stopping at the Monte Igeldo funicular, to take it and enjoy the view above. And then get off (on foot it's not too long). And down you take the City Tour.
