This is a great way to get the lay of the land and to learn some fun facts. We actually got on the bus 3 separate times. We did the entire tour on the 1st day. If you want to get off the bus at a specific stop, try to tell the bus driver or tour guide ahead of time...they do not always announce which stop is coming up. We went through several stops without them announcing the name or number of the stop. The stops are numbered on street signs but you have to be in a spot where you can see them easily. Our 1st tour guide was fantastic. He had his tour well prepared. The 2nd time we got on the bus, we had the unfortunatexperience of being on a guide's 1st ever tour. She was horrible because she could not articulate an entire sentence but the way she put things, made us laugh, that was not intentional. The 3rd guide was also pretty good.
The steps to the top are steep and the seats are narrow
