We only had time to just do the "City Loop" (therefore got on & off at same stop). So at $55 pp, costing the 3 us $165 it would have definitely been cheaper to hire a taxi or even a limo. Everything we saw within...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my upgraded 2 day pass of the hop on hop off The only thing that could make it better would be if headphones and audio were better. I finally discarded my headphones, but missed a lot of history. Yes, I highly recommend.
