The buses were easy to get to once we got off the cruise ships shuttle. We stayed on the bus for the entire loop then went off to the places we wanted to see. The drivers were all very nice and very informative with a lot of information. We highly recommend this Hop on Hop off bus, So glad we took this route for our short stay

Best on and off tour we have been on. Guide was very knowledgeable and the tour stops were all places of interest. The fact that your ticket stub showed pickup times at all stops made planning a breeze. Highly recommended.

The tour driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She referred to herself as the "hat lady" always wearing her hat. The round-about tour was enjoyable, getting to know the city and leaving plenty of time to explore on our own.
