A: Did you enjoy the city tour bus in London?
B: No, I didn't. It wasn't a complete waste of money but it came close / but it was close.

Hi guys! I use "but it came close" and "but it was close" to mean "but it was almost a waste of money". Which one sounds the most suitable in this situation?

Thanks very much!
