We are not a big bus company! 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 which are built specifically for sightseeing tours. We take you where the big buses can’t go. 

Our minibuses have large windows for 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.
