The tour guide was very knowledgeable my only complaint is it wasn't made clear in the instructions that we would be picked up right outside the cruise terminal so we paid a taxi which we didn't have to do.

The trolley & cruise were great. The problem was finding where it started. We're seniors so chose to not walk it & took a cab both ways.Would of been nice to be picked up at the port.

To board you must take an easy mile walk to the first pick up site. This is an easy way to get around the city with frequent stops and easy to access. Your can walk from the terminal or catch a cab.

We really enjoyed the hop on hop off bus ride. The only problem was it was hard to get to from the ship. The harbor cruise as very nice. Would do this again.
