Definitely not worth the money. The audio was not coordinated with the drive so we were looking at something completely different. I used these buses from Ireland down and this was just terrible.

Very deceiving. Driver unfriendly and made us get off bus at end. We were told we could stay on to see the ALL sights that we missed the first go round. It is NOT worth the time or money!!

Always try to get on a city tour bus if new to the area. Gives a good view of what's where. This wasn't disappointing. Earphones were great and volume worked really well. Coming from someone hard of hearing that says enough. Gave really good information...More
