The best thing about this experience was the driver. The bus was old and so loud, you couldn’t hear the narrating through the sites The girl that exchanged our vouchers for our combo tickets tried to give me a hard time saying I didn’t buy combo tickets. Then she told me expedia shouldn’t be selling the tickets that I purchased. This isn’t worth the hassle. Save yourself the headache and use grayline bus tours instead.

Very punctual, friendly & helpful drivers, some just a little more enjoyable than others. Great way to get a feel of the area, were to go spend more time!
