Loved being able to see the sites without having to navigate on our own. Being able to hop off and on at our leisure was great.

Loved getting off and on when it suited us to see all the sights. We were even able to use it the following day because it's valid for a full 24 hours!

The bus had issues with several of the audio outlets and at leas six of the plug-in boxed did not work around the seats I had. The 1:35 hr trip took nearly 4 hr due to traffic problems (no fault of the bus/service)...😕

The mate on the river cruise was funny and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed it! After three days of walking, the bus was a great way to see the city and test the feet.

I had a party of 11, tried to book tickets for the entire party, and the website would not allow me to. I had another person on the trip book 5, I booked 6. We both booked at the same time, which was after noon, she was given a discount for the remainder of the day, I was charged full price. I contacted customer support, all they offered to do was to knock 10% off my NEXT trip. I'm leaving town and will not have the opportunity to book another trip.
