We had a really lovely experience with Gray Line. We took the hop on, hop off tour on Friday, April 13th. Our only regret was that we did not also book the ghost tour. The tour was easy to work into our schedule, and the time schedule for pick up's was very easy to work with. Never had any worries or felt rushed to catch a specific trolley. Seating was comfortable, big open windows made for great views and nice breezes. The best part, however, was the driver, Uncle Ted White. He was phenomenal. Honestly the best tour guide I've had for anything. We enjoyed him so much that we actually skipped a pick up at one of our stops hoping to get back on with him, and luckily did. We later wished we had just stayed the full route with him, then got back on a different one to do the hop off part, just to hear all his stories. This man deserves some sort of recognition for sure, he's very good at his job and clearly enjoys it. I don't know if it's possible to request a specific driver, but if so, request Uncle Ted!

I had 2 drivers. I do not remember the name of the first but the second was Dean. They were knowledgeable and pleasant. It was easy to pick up the trolley and they were timely.
