Very nice tour!

Very nice tour. Unfortunately, the old town was closed due to Cinco de Mayo holiday. But the tour was really pleasant and the drivers are all friendly.

Nice way to see the city

Enjoyed our first driver very much (BW). My tip: If your driver is bad, get off at the next stop and wait for the next trolley. We had 6 drivers in 2 days and all were good but 1. Great customer service!

You can pick it up in numerous places. We got it at the dock where the midway is docked.
