This journey was fun. If you want a laugh go on it. The guide was a comedian, I would have paid the money just to listen to him.

Our driver Martin was a mine of information with many funny stories. An excellent way to see the town without having to climb lots of steps. Well worth the cost of the ticket.

How close is it to cruise ship port?

Response from Catherine C | Reviewed this property |
Really close! As you walk out of the cruise port and walk down to the town you'll see it there. It'll only take you a couple of minutes. We rode it back in September of last year and thoroughly enjoyed it!
