Used the Big Bus tours in a few US cities and they are great, this one included a transfer for a boat trip but all went seamlessly, excellent trip.

I loved the tours and I will share this beautiful experience with friends and family.

Open top bus tour of the city was amazing! A good way to see the city up close

At the port you have to exchange the voucher for the boat tickets. Nice tour

Fantastic trip and a great price for everything included
