Of course it is just about the most touristy thing to do in any city. Still, we found out that if you don't have much time to spend, it is a good way to see the major points quickly.
The hop off/hop on system makes it easy to stay a little longer at sights that particularly interest you, while skipping the ones that you don't feel are so interesting.
