We highly recommend this company! Use the Big Bus the day before - waste of money

My boyfriend and I used this bus company on 8/11/18. The guide was very good and the bus was air conditioned. We had a bad experience on the Big Bus hop on hop off tour the day before. Read my review. I am "birdlover".
