You cannot use your phone ticket on the buses you have to get a post stop guide to print it the problem we found is where to find one it was luck. The buses were not very frequent maybe one an hour we waited 25 mins for it to arrive because it was late. They stop at 5pm. It’s a good way to see everything and the commentary was clear and interesting but the service could be improved.

Little time to enjoy the bus, the last one is very early and the night tour is very early, in August it was still daytime ... we did not have time to do the walking tour, as well as by boat ... little information for the tours optional. But it is worth the bus.

We enjoyed our Big Bus experience overall, but primarily due to the guided walking tour we added. Our guide Charles was absolutely amazing. His tour was so informative and fun and one of the highlights of our stay. The buses overall were not as helpful, as the routes covered a relatively small space, ran infrequently and at unpredictable times, meaning we missed several scheduled buses and had to walk to our destinations, and because the portion of the day they ran was fairly limited (arrived at the stop near our hotel at 11, stopped running by 17) it wasn’t as useful as we had hoped. Commentary was interesting when we were able to ride.
