It felt like a private tour. Our tour guide Bruce was very personable, friendly, and kind to my mother who had mobility issues. He included her on several things that she couldn’t always step out of the vehicle to look at up close. We enjoyed so much being on the back of the car, and Bruce took several pictures of us together at the sites. It was truly a magical night for both of us. Something we’ll never forget.

Our guide was Bruce and he was very knowledgeable about the monuments and buildings in the city. You could tell that he was passionate for his city! We loved that we were his only riders and the open vehicles found maneuver around into doors they bigger vehicles couldn’t. He stopped almost anywhere we wanted to for pictures. Would do it again!

Bruce was an awesome tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited, gave us plenty of time for questions and photos, and went above and beyond to make the tour fun for everyone. The vehicle was comfortable and quiet. Everything ran smoothly and on time. Would recommend this experience.
