    The bus stops were near enough attractions to enable me to walk to get to those attractions. The information you hear through earplugs that is provided is interesting but would be better if there was a human interface. You missed some of the special nuances that a recording can’t give.

    Had a GREAT time riding Big Bus. All of the representatives on the street were nice and very helpful. The stops are strategically placed close to all the major areas of attractions to allow easy walking to. It’s definitely well worth the price to get around the city all day. Highly recommended!

    No longer is the "tour guide" provided by any of the bus tour services. SO if you're expecting a person over the mic to let you know of any landmarks or interesting facts of the city, fugedditaboutit! Now you get earbuds with some music and commercial laden stream into your ears and worse yet, the audio doesn't coordinate with whatever point of interest you pass by. Definitely take advantage of the hop on and hop off feature! Additionally, your ticket is on a 24 hour timer not the calendar day. So, your ticket is good for 24 hrs from the time you first use your ticket, on the day of use you purchased it for.
