For us as day tourists from the ship, the bus was very practical. Really goes everywhere and a little outside so that you can see something of the island.


Für uns als Tagestouristen vom Schiff war der Bus sehr praktisch. Fährt wirklich überall hin und auch ein wenig außerhalb, so dass man etwas von der Insel sieht.
