I love taking these bus tours because I can learn about the city and many sites from the tour guides. One criticism I had was the directions from stop #12 to the Garden district walking tour. The bus guide said that guests should go one to two blocks down to meet the tour guide which is what I did. I walked blindly about three blocks and didn’t see anyone and walked back and called the 800# and they didn’t know what I was talking about. I made it back to stop#12 and there was a red tent that someone from Hop off was there with other tourists. I told them that the bus driver told me to go down two blocks, and he said he never heard that before. And Dave who was my tour guide didn’t want to hear anything else that I had learned on my previous days bus tour. He was very knowledgeable about the city but didn’t want to hear about my tourist problems. I was by myself and didn’t feel like getting lost in a strange and hot city. I just think there could have been mention of the red tent waiting area from the bus tour guide, making it convenient for new tourists. Thank you for your service.
