Customer Reviews

We missed the first pick-up stop however after calling I was assured they would hit us at the second one which they did. The bus arrived on time and we had wonderful tour of the city. My granddaughter had a sprained ankle and wasn't walking very well and the bus driver was very sweet and allowed her extra time to board. Our tour guide was great too. All in all a very good experience which I would recommend to anyone!
