We bought a 2 day bus pass and the price was well worth it! The weather was not ideal for touring and having access to the bus was perfect. It was fun to take the trip all the way around to get the lay of the land initially and then ask others what they saw that they enjoyed.

Purchased our tickets from a corner sidewalk vendor (legit). When we arrived at the bus stop the woman there was not happy we had purchased our tickets (she stated so) elsewhere and would not help us with the schedule of the next bus nor anything to help make our trip pleasant

This was an easy way to get around, see some neighborhoods as well as some of the top attractions. Easy to find the drop off / pick up locations.

These buses are very informative, if you get a competent tour guide. We don’t take these tours to listen to someone else’s political opinions. Keep those to yourself.
