Excellent way to see the city. Guided tour bus or hop off and do your own exploring at your own pace. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Stops are clearly marked and easy to find.

We bought a three day pass. It turned out to be invaluable. We rode it on day one and did not get off. We used it as an overview of the city to give us ideas as to which parts we wanted to visit in more depth. Day two and three, we used it as a taxi to deliver us to several areas for further exploration. The on-board guides were knowledgeable and all had a sense of humor. They also related personal stories which made the trips better. One comment for management - it would be helpful to have a more detailed explanation of where the pickup/drop off points are located.

Definitely worth it. Good to see the whole city to see where you want to go back to to spend more time.

Hop on bus tour is a great way to see the city. We used it along with the Power Pass, so we had no need to rent a car. It was Avery good way to get around and see the sights.

We had a great time riding the hop on hop off bus. It was clean, the tour guides were friendly, funny and provided some great info. We rode several round trips and appreciated the different stories!! The drivers did a great job moving through the busy streets, as well. We never had to wait too long for the next bus, which was great!! During our three day trip, we never had to take a cab as the bus route left us close to everything. Lastly, the escorted garden and Jackson Square walking tours were great as well. A great value when you plan and use the bus, and they even provided plastic rain coats....which came in handy!
