Very nice Hop on Hop Off bus tour

about 5 days ago
We rode the bus three times. Each time the tour guide was different. In general they were entertaining, though one focused more on history while other on architecture, and third one on entertaining. Bus covers good ground. It was also convenient that they issued paper ticket ગ્રીન my online voucher in the bus itself, no need to go to the main office. Upstairs was partly covered with roof that helped against the hot sun, but downstairs the a/c could not keep up. Overall it was very enjoyable.

All good, very easy to use. Clean. Air conditioner not working in one of the buses. Interesting to listen to tour guides but hard to hear/understand them. Speaking very fast.
