It was fun and different, while the bus was warm and the seats very comfortable. We had a good time, the presenters were so happy and cheerful.

It was nice ride, no rain or major traffic jams. The two guides could have been a little more energetic. All in all nice time

Absolutely terrific from start to finish. It was like seeing a show but on wheels. The tour guides are very funny like comedians. I recommend this for everyone.

Thank you for your 5 star review of THE RIDE. We are definitely not only for tourists. Locals will love this as well for a pre-dinner or pre-theatre activity.

I was surprised how much fun I had! Interactive how?, I thought. The folks’ work hard to make sure you have a good time. With that said, I felt it was overpriced. If the trip was longer, iwould have felt I got my money’s worth.
