    The tour started out really well and we enjoyed the information provided through out the trip. We liked the ideal of being able to get on and off at will, but only used that privilage one time. The problem came when one of their drivers did not understand regulations concerning hand caped passengers and their service dog. I was through off the bus because I could not climb the stairs to the upper deck of the bus, when the entire handcape area was wide open. The next bus came by 40 minutes later and we were able to board and return to the start of the ride.

We had a great time. We saw things we wouldn't have been able to see had we not taken the bus. If you're planning to sit on the top of the bus be prepared with a good jacket and maybe gloves and hat. It was really cold and the wind was really blowing.

Overall this was an excellent excursion.... very well organised, good training session, interesting places and terrain to ride the Segway and an excellent guide.

It was the perfect way to end the day. We had such a blast that we will be coming back soon with more of our family members!
