    Right - you are at the Information Centre and want to find out if you can get on a bus at the hotel where you are staying in order to go to look at the local ruins:

    "I am staying at xxxx Hotel, and I want to go to oooooo Ruins. I believe there is a bus that goes there. Will I be able to join the tour-bus at the hotel? OR Will the tour bus take me from the hotel?"
    How's that?

    Perhaps the following:

    1. At the hotel, will the bus take us?
    2. At the hotel, will the bus be taking us?
    3. At the hotel, is the bus going to take us?
    4. At the hotel, does the bus take us? (Not so good)

    I know what you mean. Try,
    Is there a bus at the hotel (that I can take to get around town, or are taxis my only option?)

    Arrow Re: Some questions...

    Hello people,

    Finally I'm understanding this... Ufff!

    I think that one of the main problem that made me so confused in all this was only a "preposition"; rather than use "in/to/on" I should use "at" to make the question. Now, I also understood that I can use the auxiliary "does" as much as "will" to make the question, right?

    Thanks a lot for all of you who have clarified me! (does this sentence make sense?) - uuhh! Other question...
