Hop on/Hop off bus is great. Self guided and able to do what we wanted when we wanted!
Reviewer: Wendy Jones
The pictures that you can take from the top of a double decker bus are far superior to any taken from ground level. We also had the added perk of being able to listen (in one of 7 languages) to a description and brief history of many of the sites that we passed. This makes for a most relaxing and enjoyable way to see a city when you have limited time.
Easy to find great service great view of all the city !
Reviewer: Katherine Kang
Directios were clear and specific. Easy to redeem. A great value.. Enjoyed many stops along the way.
Great Way to get around and see the city overview quickly in the morning. Then you can decide how to spend your afternoon and use the bus for transport.
