product is good
3.0 / 5
The bus ride was too long and we found we could have seen most of it with the Hop on Hop off tour. Was promised we could take photos but it was mainly through the bus windows. The first bus driver/guide was excellent and very entertaining. The second driver/guide was knowledgeable just not as engaging. Hancock Tower was great.
