Pretty good, guide was nice and knowledgeable. Never sent Tshirts he promised to send. Not sure about that, trivia contest was a little sketchy and rules changed. Tour interesting. Bus had bathroom, great for our large group
The tour was ok, but we thought it would have more places to see and would have liked to have seen the places we drove passed and missed.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and you can see he embraced and loved the movies. The only thing we would criticize is that when the guide was going through the ´up and coming´ points of interests and because he was too busy chatting about work and films with the other guests on the bus, we passed them!! It´s a shame, as we would have liked to have seen them. This may not be important to the guide or the other guests on the bus, but it meant a lot to us.
