An interesting overview of the a small area. The price was OK and the information provided was OK as well. However, we were told there would be a craft fair on Saturday morning in the park - which proved to be incorrect.

I was very disappointed in the condition of "the Conde Street" it was extremely in poor & dirty condition full of street vendors, far from what it should be restored.

This is the perfect way to get around the Colonial Zone if you've been walking all day and need a rest, or you have mobility issues, or it's bloody hot out, or you just don't want to walk every corner of the Zone. There's a roof above each car to block out the sun. It's open air. During my ride... More
