    • Got all questions answered. Employees appeared friendly.

      Jerri Pick, United States, 17/Jun/2019
    • A tad bit overpriced...especially since the microphones weren’t fully functioning on all the buses, so missed half of the talk on one of the rides.

      It would also be helpful to see the full route online somewhere BEFORE the purchase, so that you know what you’re getting and can better plan ahead.
