The activity was enjoyed the driver was very knowledgeable about history and had a good sense of humor at stops along the way they would have a character so to speak come on the bus and tell a ghostly story. I was on This past Saturday night. The gentleman that came on the bus last was loud obnoxious and totally and completely unnecessary. It was a wonderful experience overall and the food was good too!

Guide very knowledgeable and fun! I was able to open plastic cover for better views with approval of other riders near me in a chilly day. Was helped by ticket reviewer. Was disappointed to see I purchased ticket in advance from you but others buying tickets that day at the check-in desk got a discount. Felt buying in advance from a third party was a disadvantage.

DJ was an excellent tour guide!!! We enjoyed this tour immensely listening to the detailed historic facts. It gave us a beautiful overview of the sites we wanted to hop off to visit, and then hop back on.

Very enjoyable evening. One of the nicest tour guides I've evcer met. Thanks for a lovely experience. Great shrimp!!!!!!
