Despite a crowded Saturday, there wasn't a long wait. Buses come along frequently. You could get off to visit points of interest and catch the next bus. We stayed on loop first time through to stay with our guide to get overview. Very good tour...More

The trolley tours are very close to the harbour. I wouldn’t suggest bringing your luggage on the trolley. But it is definitely walking distance from the harbour. Hope this helps

It is one of the seasonal stops. There was a group from a ship on one of the days. You may want to contact the company for details about how it works.
