Shiny new open top buses with an excellent commentary via disposable headphones. This hop-on hop-off tour is a great way to tour the city, particularly to look down upon the hurly burly of the Central Business District downtown.

Buses are regular and on time. Check their website for latest and updated times. But they usually run every 30 minutes or so. Enjoy!
