We had a great time on both parts of the tour. On the bus portion, the driver was great! He was on time picking us up at the hotel, and he explained what was up everywhere we went. I liked his sense of humor, and all of us appreciated how solicitous he was while giving the tour. The stops along the tour seemed well planned (with the exception of the Alexander Hamilton statue stop). At the end of the tour, he gave us directions on how to get to the boat tour ticket office (mere steps away) and exchange our vouchers for an actual ticket. The boat tour was fabulous! Very interesting architecture in the city, and the docent/guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. Stories were very good too. All in all, this was a fantastic tour, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it!
