    Real good fun

    Glad to have booked the tour. Got a reluctant teen boy to enjoy city sightseeing. The comments from the tour guide were timely and informative. Only thing to know is that you don’t get to do a big loop within the hour. I would have paid a little more for a longer tour.

    Great views and information

    Unfortunately, our family was split across rows on same side of the bus so that picture taking was limited (best views were on the other side) and we weren't able to converse easily. Groups which are split should be across the aisle from one another. Then maybe someone in the group has a chance for a good picture.

    L’amphibus pour l’heure qu’on avait réservée était en panne, la compagnie nous a appelée le matin même pour savoir si on voulait être remboursé ou si on acceptait de changer l’heure. On a pris la 2e option et on n’a pas regretté ! Bonne façon de découvrir la ville et ses bâtiments.
