Wonderful way to see the city
Oct 2019
This bus tour is such a great way to see the city and give you the opportunity to get off when you want to. The only thing I didn't like is that there wasn't an actual tour guide on each bus. My friend and I had gotten off a couple of times and each time getting back on it was a different driver and sometimes it was just a "guide" by earphones and other times there was somebody actually talking via a microphone.

Not Much to see
Nov 2019
This review is not so much about the Hop on Hop off in Genoa but more about the museums themselves. We happen to be in Genoa Sun and Monday , both days were raining. Thought a Plan B inside a museum would save the day but all their museums were closed on Mondays. It would be nice if tourists had somewhere interesting to go to on a monday. They could alternate CLOSED days of palaces and museums if they really cared about their tourists.

Great way to get a good idea of Genoa and find the highlights. Ear phones not working on one of the buses which was a shame so missed our exit stop!
Helpful staff mostly.

Use it if limited time in Genoa and first time visitor (but make sure you choose the right bus)
Oct 2019
We were on a cruise that docked in Genoa for about 8 hours so we had limited time to explore a city we had not previously visited. However we were convinced to take the 'other yellow bus tour' by a tout in the chaos of a flood of passengers leaving the ship and first ended up on a non-stop trip around the city. With now even less time available in this hilly city we decided to go on the hop-on bus as well and visit a few of the places near the stops as the price was reasonable.

What was disappointing was not the bus and the recorded explanations, but the apparent lack of tourism-focus by the locals (inadequate signage, staff not being helpful). I will however continue to use the hop on services around the world.

Very disappointing. Expensive, poor service, definitely better things to do in Genoa
Oct 2019
The tour is OK, with just one route lasting one hour so rather expensive compared to Hop On Hop Off bus routes in other European cities.

However, that was the least of my problems. First, I paid 18 Euros for 24 hours and the conductor told me, without prompting, that I could use the ticket the next day. I checked with her that she really meant that, given that it said 24 hours on the ticket, and she said "certainly". Of course, that information was completely inaccurate and I was denied access the next day as my ticket had expired a couple hours before I tried to board the bus. I would not have wasted my time if the bus conductor had just said "The validity is strictly limited to 24 hours".

Second, as I got off at Stop No. 9, I asked the conductor the way to the Oriental Art Museum. Uninterested, she waved in one direction that was completely the wrong direction. Fortunately, most of the other people I encountered in Genoa were not only friendly but very helpful. Maybe I was just unlucky, but the bus company really should train their staff better if they want to ensure a happy customer experience.

Lackluster Hop On/Off
Sep 2019
Most cities have a Hop-on Hop-off tour. This one was not the best of Genova.. It did not include the Port of Genoa or the Beach area, both of which are quite beautiful. The 30-minute stop around lunch time wasn't even near any Italian restaurants.

Hop on Hop off Genoa
Sep 2019 • Couples
What a waste of Euros. The map made it look like you stopped near places when you didn’t. The audio system didn’t work. The signs for pickups weren’t clear. They didn’t stop where we needed to get off, it was beyond frustrating. Don’t do it.

As usual it's a good way to visit the essential places. The staff is not bad, the frequency is acceptable and stops are easily spotted.
Only the audio commentary doesn't work in a continuous way
