How far in advance should we book this experience?

These tours sell out fast! It is best to book your spot as soon as possible, OR you can contact us directly and see if we have any last-minute bookings available.

We are not a big bus company! While it’s very common to see large hop-on, hop-off buses around town, we take a much more personal approach. Our guides not only have intimate knowledge and unmatched enthusiasm for our city, but we also use specialized minibuses that are built specifically for sightseeing tours. We take you where the big buses can’t go. 

Our minibuses have large windows for a full view of the city as we conduct the tour and are climate controlled with plenty of room for everyone. We stop several times and provide many photo opportunities.
