A 40 passenger bus pulled up in front of the hotel and away we went. Now a 40 passenger bus in not huge, but it is a good size. Everything was fine as we stopped at other hotels picking up folks taking the tour - then we hit the French Quarter. Our driver was good, very good. At no time, was it dangerous, but it sure was exciting threading the needle with that bus. We came within inches of street signs, balcony supports, other cars, etc. It reminded me of one of those track rides in Disney World - except this was live. It was an "E" ride!
