Had to switch buses as they kept breaking down. Didn’t realize hop on hop off was because the equipment was terrible. Refund was refused. Plenty of other bus tours, pick any other tour.

Guys he said it's not a hotel. If it's only a carry on bag it won't be a problem. You can put it under your seat.
