The tours itself were good, getting there was a challenge. We were suppose to get picked up at our hotel, but that didn't happen. However, we were reimbursed for the taxi fare. It was unclear to us that when the bus tour was over, we were suppose to get onto another bus to take us to the pier for the river cruise. We missed our scheduled river cruise and waited 25 minutes for another bus to bring us to the pier. An apologetic agent waited with us until we were picked up. The slip of paper we were given did not indicate what boat tour we're suppose to get on. The bus driver told us to walk to the end of the pier. The picture on the website showed what looked like a yacht. We ended up on a small boat for the archictectural tour, which was excellent. Because of this experience, I would not use this local tour operator again.

The bus tour was disorganized and very hard to find at the Palmer House. The bus was enclosed so we could not see much (no double decker). The boat ride was excellent; I would recommend just doing the boat tour.

tour started late, problems with bus, driver was also guide and was less than enthusiastic about describing the sights. Didn't even bother wtih the boat part after the bus experience.

How in the heck did this end up being an Obama tour? I could not care less where he gets his pizza, works out, buys his groceries or takes care of business. Water half was great.

also the speaker guide was very bad in his type of talk,so we could not understand well.
but the river cruise speaker guide was excelant and super
