“The Ride”

Enjoy a different kind of sightseeing experience with The Ride, the bus tour that’s part tour and part show. See the sights and enjoy street performances along the way.  You’ll ride in special buses that are custom-designed for this experience with stadium-type setting (you sit facing out the large side windows), plasma monitors, advanced audio system, and LED lights.

The Ride gets good reviews at TripAdvisor from travelers who have experienced it.  More reviews on Yelp, with photos.
