Unfortunately, this company No Showed. I purchased this tour and took an Uber to the meeting place up but none of the buses were running and none of the drivers ever showed up. We waited for over 45 minutes in the freezing cold at night. Complete waste of time and money, both the tour costs and the Uber costs round trip. The actually tour bus company sent an email two days later apologizing and stating they tried to call and email about the cancellation of the tour. That was not true as they did not call or email or text about a cancellation. There was absolutely no communication.

Disappointing. The ride started late and ended early. Additionally due to the holiday street closures the ride took alternative routes which made the experience in an open air bus dangerous- especially for children. I completely understand the challenges of the holiday weekend but certainly the 4th of July didn’t surprise anyone and alternate plans could have been made. The bright spot was the guide who was fabulous!
