The tour departs from the station located in Plaza Olmedo (Olmedo Square) at the Simon Bolivar Pier, and it continues through that avenue until it crosses the Santa Ana hill tunnel, and then it passes the Atarazana suburb, followed by the avenues Plaza Dañin and Tanca Marengo. Afterwards it reaches the Mall del Sol shopping center, from there it goes through the Francisco de Orellana Avenue until it reaches the Universidad Estatal (State Unversity). From there it tours the avenues Carlos Julio Arosemena and 9 de Octubre until Chile Street and from there it goes through the Olmedo Avenue and finally returns to the Pier.
During the ride the tourist can enjoy a party ambiance, since the bus has as basic additional service, music, television, and exclusive entertainment programs according to their needs. The tour includes drinks (soft and alcoholic) as well as small dishes. There is also the “Hora Loca” (Crazy Hour), which has clowns, animations, among others.
