"Not for us"

When we bought tickets for the bus we did not realise that from our hotel everything was within walking distance. We only used it a couple of times when we were tired.

The Genoa tour was awesome. Having the freedom to hop on and off at multiple stops was great. The ability to hear the tour info through provided earbuds in English was very helpful.

We arrived at the cruise ship terminal and decided to try the HOHO bus. It was a great way to get an overview of the city. We took it for a full loop around the city, then later got off at the venues we wanted to explore some more. Had a lovely day walking around town and using the bus.... More

We went to Genoa as a day visit from a cruise. We had initially planned to do a bus tour, to find out where the best sights were. As we came out of the port 2 people came over with details for Genoa City Tour Bus. They inferred we would have a hop on hop tour and so we paid... More

Having been on several of these in a variety of cities we tried this one today and we're not disappointed. We picked the open top bus up from Station Principle and we're provided with head phones to listen to the excellent guide. Having already walked around the city for a couple of days it was good to have names and... More

I was recommended to take this HOHO bus but it turned out to be a waste of money. It's a way to get a general impression of Genoa and its beautiful architecture but certainly not the way I expected. The driver was going too fast and you could hardly enjoy the sights. The bus was full but they still allowed... More

I really didn't know what to expect from Genova, but I fell in love with the city. Its architecture are just spectacular and the cleanliness of the city is the best I have seen in any Italian city. The City Sightseeing bus is ideal to see the highpoints of this anazing city. The culture, the history and the wonderful buildings... More

Booked hop-on/hop-off at cruise terminal pier. Literature says it takes 55 minutes. Cost is 15 Euros/person. Map includes a printed schedule that bus didn't really adhere to. The one thing they did adhere to was the stopping of the tour at stop #1 after we just boarded at stop #8 at the pier which is the last stop before stop... More

We often use the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off (HOHO) buses when visiting tourist cities. They are really only cost effective if you have most of the day to tour. The HOHO bus is better than public buses because they tend to drop you right at tourist sites and have frequent schedules with good maps. If you have a... More
