Very knowledgeable bus guide and boat captain. We could not see several of the sites due to road closures and construction in several areas. The area needs more ADA access to all of these sites.

The hop on off bus was a great way to get around. We used that instead of Uber or taxi… lol! And most things were within walking distance of our hotel anyway. To cruise on the river walk was very nice
