We’re local but decided one day to play ‘tourist’ around the city. We did a full trip around the city and then another trip to get on and off. The drivers were great and our last guide ‘Warren’ was a blast!

The bus stops are near all the points of interest. You do have to go to certain spots to buy the pass though. Our concierge at our hotel directed us to the closest one us at the Sonesta.
