Our small open bus was operated by a tour guide that has been doing it for 35 years - so she knows the area. It was fun and we rented a golf cart for two hours and rode around the highlights of the island and Avalon.

Great way to see the island with no walking. Great views and commentating. Price paid is reasonable for the 50 minute tour.

We enjoyed our tour! Nice new mini bus. The driver was knowledgeable and interesting. It was a little scary on the high mountain road to the big white mansion home on the hill but a beautiful view!

The driver was too old 77 by her admission, spoke low, condescending, more about her life than Island facts.

This tour well worth the money and time. We thought it was over at the half-way point but driver kept going to the other part of the tour. Driver was Native American who was well informed, accommodating, and humorous.

Becky the guide/driver was quite a character. Since I've read previous reviews about her, I wasn't surprised. She was very nice and let me on the bus first since I was using a cane. It was a great introduction to the island, made exciting by the hairpin turns and crazy golf cart drivers. She made sure we got a chance to take photos at a certain lookout point. Wish the sound system was better since some of what she said was garbled and it was hard to hear with nearby passengers talking at the same time. I would have taken the longer tour and seen more of the island but it wasn't available during my visit.

The tour itself was beautiful but unfortunately the tram we rode in was a terrible ride and actually painful for me and my mom. My two kids didn't seem to mind bouncing around though. I would suggest the Skyline Bus tour instead.

Lots of fun. Comfortable and beautiful scenery.
