I enjoyed the Big Bus. It was easy to understand and the app was a great help! Wanda helped us get our tickets and she was excellent!!!! She made sure we had everything ready to go. The only thing I would suggest is planning things out so you have enough time to get to certain locations. Getting back was a bit hard since everyone was trying to get back a good majority of the buses we're full.

Must do if you have the chance! There are 2 courses (uptown and downtown). It makes you discover corners of the city that we could not have done (for lack of time and walking distance). There are also headphones provided that allow you to listen to a guided recording with interesting facts depending on the route! Tickets are valid for 24 hours, so activate your ticket with someone from BigBus (there are people at each stop) only on your first departure so as not to waste time. We did downtown one day and uptown the next morning. We heard during our first boarding, because the bus was already full. Make time for this kind of situation.

The downtown tour was nice. We didn't do the Uptown Tour because it was too crowded and too many people wanted to get on the bus and the Uptown Bus only ran once an hour. Customers should be told that they can exchange their voucher at M&M World as early as 9:00 am. Then it's not that full.
