Seeing the smiles and excitement on my families faces were the best part of the tour. And our bus driver (Charles or Charlie) made the experience even better with his knowledge and love for his city.

Our narrator, Yuri, was very good. He made everyone feel welcome. The city is beautiful at night. You get a few minutes to get out and take skyline photos. The only thing I’d recommend is cleaning up trash and drying seats before a tour.

The recording didn’t seem to match the area. It was as confusing of what building they were talking about. The information was great but we didn’t know exactly what it referred to.

Driver took us on the interstate at high rates of speed. You could barely hear him talking and it didn’t match up with the audio in the headphones.

7:30pm is not a night bus tour 😊

The tour started on time and roughly around 75 minutes. It’s an no hop-in hop-out tour. I would have preferred to take next bus as it’s suppose to be night bus tour but it was having lot of sunshine when we started. The tour touches important points in that area.

Not terrible but not what I expected
Rochelle_O
, Jun. 2022
While the tour took us through many parts of the city, it did not provide enough guidance or direction to know what buildings the recording was actually talking about. There is a constant back and forth between an audio recording via ear buds and then music via ear buds while the driver guide talked over the loud speaker. The guide's driving left a lot to be desired as she was very liberal with the brakes and nearly took out a police car. Overall the evening ride was enjoyable but the tour is not very informative.

It got confusing with tickets because you don’t really need to buy them from via tour. You can buy right from the driver. However no one should sell more tickets than seats on the open air top of the bus. The driver was really good at making sure those who were there first got on first.
