It was really nice hopping onto one of the buses and cruising around the city over the traffic. We were provided the free earphones but we din’t use them. We were satisfied just visually absorbing the city.

Absolutely fantastic concept to have a 24hr pass with unlimited rides. If you time it right you can almost sustitute it for taking a cab after your shopping. The bus stops are very centrally located. Good deal.

We were greeted by the driver and given the free earphones which connected to the jack next to the seat for a very usefull audio guide. The bus was clean and on time.
