This was such a fun trip! The car attracts attention at every corner. John was very informative and gave lots of interesting comments. You can request specific area or just let him take you around. Pickup and return to hotel made it so convenient. Even though it was a rainy day, the trip was just lovely. Great way to fill an afternoon after you are tired of walking.

A great fun activity for a beautify day with the roof rolled back. Thoroughly recommended. At times the car seemed to attract more interest than the main attractions!

It was a fun and lively tour. We went to places which aren't too touristy. Our guide was very informative and professional.
