Fun way to see the city

Great way to see the city and get your bearings. Slatted wood seats are a little uncomfortable but add charm to open air bus. Wish the tour guide had provided more information.

Our Tour Guide Gabriela is awesome and we can understand her very well. And our driver stops in some areas that we can take a good look and able to take photos. My husband and I are very glad we took this tour and very satisfied.
Ok but shorter than expected

The tour was good to get an overview of the city. Its difficult to take pictures as they just drive by or stop diractly in front of the building. I was not satisfied as the tour is advertised to last two haurs. In fact it was only 80 minutes. I mentioned that to the guide and he said that I was wrong. I checked back with the Viator website and - no. It clearly stated two hours.

el city tour de merida si puede uno tomar fotos porque no puede el autobus ir rapido va despacio en general el tiempo desde que empieza es de 1.30 hr y minutos a 2 hrs en total ya que algunas veces hay mucho trafico, el cliente tiene razon que en la pagina web debe decir 1.30hrs de tiempo del city. favor de corregir saludos .

The tour was a nice basic bus trip around Merida. At first, the local tour company would not honor my Viator voucher they indicated that they never heard of Viator. After MUCH debate, they said that they would let me go ahead and take the tour. The bus does not look like the picture, it's more of an older open air, wooden seat bus. It was interesting and I saw areas of the city I was not familiar with, but it was a bit of a hassle.
