The ride is nice and smooth. The places are beautiful, the beaches are wonderful and city is great. The commentators on the Busses are exceptional and easy to comprehend.

Better to take city tour and TM separately. In combined, make each 1/2 day to get benefit of both with a day trip. Super the guide is really super!!!!
