from the meeting place-very busy but quite safe, double checked for tickets but not ID. The bus- clean and ok for comfort, got toilet but not enough support to be left clean by customer- a bit unsanitary. Excellent and safe drivers, respect everyone as adult. Bi-lingual tour guide is excellent, except some people just don't get it. So sometimes we lost time by waiting on them. Short but informative visit to the center with 10 minute video. Lots and lots of walking, sometimes very unforgiving to older generations, specially on a hot and humid day. No options to eat at chinatown, wherein, food is a little cheaper and interesting. No megaphone for everyone to hear what instruction was being given, so sometimes the older generations makes mistake by not being on time. Only a black open umbrella was used as a point or mark to head back to the bus or where the guide will be at a certain time. Bill, a veteran, our tour guide was excellent- historically more believable than the statue/building
The trip was great. Managed to see many of the key sites in a short time. Bus driver and tour guide fantastic. Only thing was that we had very little time at each place and the travel took much longer than expected (arrived back at 9.30pm, not 7pm). However very aware it was going to be a whistle stop tour and we were very pleased to have done it.
This one day tour was more than expected. Every main point was seen despite the long travelling time by the bus. Carlos, our guide was very nice, helpful and caring. His knowledge is amazing. Drivers drove safely. Highly recommended for everyone.
Well worth the cost. If we had rented a car and went there ourselves we would have missed the majority of the significant sites and backstories. We enjoyed our guides knowledge of the area and personal approach. Highly recommended.
Adam was great with our teen boys. He was thoroughly knowledgeable and shared interesting facts with us. He gave us time to get out of car and do some exploring. We loved the trip!
