The two routes are interesting. Fun and an easy way to see the city. A lot of stops were closed on Sunday. Not the fault of the tour. Saturdays or mid week is probably better.

The guides were helpful and the bus drivers were great. There is free wifi on bus. The stops are easy to id. The stops are close to the actual activity so little walk to get to them. Timeline very good. Clean buses.
