we used the bus for two days. you got us to a lot of places we more than likely would not have seen. Only thing the bus could have been a little more timely.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The tour was a lot of fun, and as a result we know what we want to do next time we visit. We should have taken the tour at the beginning, not the end of our visit.
