Really upset about the service, we arrived at 9.50 in the morning and they told us that we had wait until 10.50 for the other boat because they have only just one boat doing hop on hop off, they should write on the web site that the hours of the boat are very restricted. at the end we paid another boat for get there as soon as we can (it takes just 15 min) so we didn’t waste our morning.
The price is not that convenient also because there is no reason to book online if I have to stay on the queue for get the ticket anyway.
