    Nice way to get an overview of the area and sites to visit during our stay. We planned to pick up the bus along the route after having taken a cab to a specific site. It was difficult to locate exactly where the pick-up point was; the map provided does not give enough detail to find the stop. We finally did find it after wandering around a bit. The bus arrived about 10 minutes later than the schedule indicated.
