If you have used Hop On-Hop Off bus somewhere else in the world you know that it gives you a great overview of a city. These are very useful if you are here only for a couple of days. Navigating your way around a new city can be frustrating since not everyone is confident using the local bus system or able to walk long distances. Taking a Hop On Hop Off bus tour leaves navigation to someone else while you get to sit back and enjoy the sights.
