    The bus stops were near enough attractions to enable me to walk to get to those attractions. The information you hear through earplugs that is provided is interesting but would be better if there was a human interface. You missed some of the special nuances that a recording can’t give.

    Had a GREAT time riding Big Bus. All of the representatives on the street were nice and very helpful. The stops are strategically placed close to all the major areas of attractions to allow easy walking to. It’s definitely well worth the price to get around the city all day. Highly recommended!
