It was not particularily exciting or worth the money. There needs to be better coordination of drop offs and pickups to make this a true
hop on/hop off experience. Having to be stuck at each stop for an hour does not make sense. Some places we only wanted to spend 15 min but didn't because we didn't want to have to wait an hour for the bus to come back around. I think the FREE Open House a couple weeks after our tour would have been a better option. Sorry.
The route covered a very good view of the city. However, we missed the bus on two occasions because it barely stopped before it took off again. Also, Other cities have pick-ups at each location every 20 min. or so. That way, you don't have to stay one hour before the bus comes around again. Either the one hour was too long true for some stops or too short--especially for the Memorial Art Museum.
I think the tour was just fine. But not enough information for someone who's actually from the area. So it was a little boring. Good for people who are in from out of town. I thought it was a little bit too much money for what it was
We missed the first pick-up stop however after calling I was assured they would hit us at the second one which they did. The bus arrived on time and we had wonderful tour of the city. My granddaughter had a sprained ankle and wasn't walking very well and the bus driver was very sweet and allowed her extra time to board. Our tour guide was great too. All in all a very good experience which I would recommend to anyone!
