At the moment there is only one route with two stops thats included with the main stop at the Merida Cathedral. Its not worth it because its 120 MXN per person and its a bus with a recorded voice and you do see highlights but its cheaper if you get an uber and go to Paseo De Montejo and walk... More

This was an informative tour. The information is recorded and we took the tour in Spanish. We met different places around Merida that we would not visit without this tour. This tour showed us the historical places and monuments. Yes, you will have to pay attention to some branches but it is out of control of Turibus. Overall a good... More

This tour was all in Spanish, so be aware there is no option for any other language. There were a couple very very low electricity lines which nearly hit passengers in the face including some Christmas decorations which got bent by hitting the top of the bus. The bus does not run on time for any times past 4pm, we... More

I was given a map in Spanish and listened to the tour in Spanish. No option for any other language. Unfortunately, it was like taking a ride on a bus for more than an hour. I didn't understand anything about the identities of anything in the tour. Nice bus ride and I took pics that i will have to match... More

It's a habit of ours to take hop on hop off buses in cities we visit. We previously visited Merida and went on the other bus (the Guagua) twice. This visit we had some time to kill before taking a flight so we decided to try the turibus. I already knew the comment was going to be in Spanish and... More

I took the bus with my friends and its quite bad and dangerous. Basically you don´t see so much. At downtown, the bus stops for long time and then it goes fast around the city. But the worst of everything is that you must avoid all the cables, trees and branches that passes a few centimeters of your head. At... More

As we were short in Merida, this was the most convenient way to have a good tour in short time. We used the red bus, tour takes approx. 1h and takes you through all the important sites. Only thing is that the tour on spanish, but still you go through all the major locations and I must say there is... More

We wanted to take this bus tour, and read several places the tours are given in both English and Spanish. We tried several times and were told the tours are only in Spanish. The double decker bus is hop-on-hop off, the single level bus is not.

A good way to see the city and get your bearings so you can then explore by foot. Just like your typical big red bus tour in any major city. Staff is friendly and the busses are clean and in pretty good repair. Easiest place to board them is at the Plaza Grande en el Centro or at the Hyatt... More

They have 2 Busses (red and black) and we have been told, that they have different routes. One price to use both (120Peso) My advice: Use only the red one which is ok. The Black goes partly the same route and we found it a waste of time without any points of interest Both tours last 1hour, not 1:30h as... More
