Roxanne S, Aug 2017
Tour was good Waited too long at one of the stops almost 40 minutes which was a bit unusual I think. Guides were very knowledgeable about the city. Would have been nice for the bus to drive a bit slower or pull over a bit more at some "non assigned" stops for better pictures, missed photos

Cindy E, July 2017
It was a nice ride through the city to see the sites. It was nice that you generally did not have the same tour guide twice as the all had different perspectives and bits of history to share. The only disappointment was that we actually thought the tour by night would be different and not identical to the day rides.
