Has some issues getting our third batch of tickets. One teacher had a JCB card, but the other two of us succeded the first time and couldn't get the last 6 teenagers. We ended up having to pay cash. The ride was great though. So not all love but there was an overall a good experience.

We've used Big Bus in many places, and it's always terrific! And we'll continue to use it if it's available wherever we go!

It was an easy way to have a glance to the city marks. I whish there was more history on the bus audio instead of mostly music.
