Do people really enjoy these sightseeing buses? I did one years ago.... I hated it.... I kept wanting to get off and go and have a proper look at the sights. I suppose if you are not up to long treks through the city then they are ok - but otherwise - walk! You will see so much more!

Unique Suggestions: If you have to do the bus sightseeing thing - at least have some idea prior to the tour of what you are looking at. I get the impression the guide says "take a photo..........NOW!" and everyone does - without really knowing much about the sight they are seeing.

Fun Alternatives: There is a tour bus company who allow passengers to hop on and off at lots of different stops - this seems like a good idea.
