This was a tremedous disappointment. I have been on hop on hop off tours in many cities and generally find them to be a good way to orient myself to the city and learn about key city highlights. Our bus was stuck in traffic most of the time and our headphones did not work. Buses were overcrowded and unavailable most of the time. At the end of the day, our driver failed to tell us we had to get a shuttle back to our cruise ship and just dropped us off and told us how to walk back to meet the shuttle. The respresentative we spoke with at the shuttle stop was rude and kept telling those of us with concerns that we were wrong. Instead of arguing with us he should be listening so they can improve service. I would recommend walking or taking some other tour as an alternative to this particular hop on, hop off experience.

Our guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable. The small bus allowed us to visit neighborhoods that would be inaccessible to larger buses. We went on the half day afternoon tour and our only regret was not booking the full day tour This is an excellent value and would be interesting even if you were not rock music fans.
