Even Better at Night

I've taken this tour during the day and it was great but taking it at night was even better. Well worth the money.

Sit on top

The only way to do this tour is to sit on the top of the bus— but if you don’t get to the bus 45 minutes early you won’t get a seat. The tour covers a lot of great things to see but the canned prerecorded tour reminds one of a Disney ride.

Go 90 minutes early

If you cannot arrive at the departure point at least 90 minutes early don’t sign up. The 24 seats in the bottom of the double decker bus is the same as riding a transit bus. You see nothing.
