  • Customer Reviews

    • It proved to be the best way of exploring the city and surrounds

      It was a late decision to take this option but it almost certainly was one of the best decisions we made. The driver was very informative and numerous with it...

      Although we had a few problems with the audio system ,they didn't detract fro the overall experience. All in all an excellent experience...
