This is the way to get a good overview of the city. The guide was informative and entertaining. We rode the entire tour and on the second go around, stopped where we wanted. The buses were running about every fifteen minutes, so very little waiting. All in all a good experience.

Born & raised in Philadelphia, I learned a some new things from our tour guide, William. We plan to return and take advantage of the hop on/hop off feature, rather than just the 1.5 hour loop. It was a spectacular day, made all that much better with William's wit and knowledge. Special thanks too, to Wanda, our bus driver who drove through the city smooth as silk (which is nearly impossible in a car, so it was especially amazing on the bus).
