Bought online but tickets wouldn't scan when we boarded. Also the bus service was ending more than two hours early which would have only given us the ability to lap the city without utilizing the hop-off part of the tour. That information was not provided online, so there was no value for us.

A priceless keepsake of this beautiful structure and the view from the balcony alone is more than worth it! My photographer was great; she gave all sorts of good ideas for poses, which was very helpful, but I just wanted a snap in front of this phenomena. Thank you!

Fantastic way to see the sights. Easy to find the stops . Not only do you see the sights, but the audio describes the history behind the landmarks.

Service was excellent. The frequency of bus and the convenience of visiting most of the attractions using the bus was great. Extremely efficient.

An excellent way to see the city. One tip, wear a warm hat in winter on top deck, can get cold. Staff very helpful .
