Bus driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional. Saw many interesting places and learned some history of the city. There were 48 or 49 people on the bus--way too many. At the first stop 2 people did not show up on time, we waited, they did not come, we finally left without them. Like smaller groups.

Good tour with several stops at points of interest around town. Comfortable bus. Pickup location not convenient because requires a cab ride from cruise terminal.
