My airport pick up was late by almost two hours so as a result, I was late for the afternoon tour as well. The driver and the guide were very patient on waiting for me. I told my guide that I understand that we only have two hours left so suggested that we just drive around while he tells me the stories behind the places on the itenerary. He went above and beyond and managed to get off and drop by in each off the locations. It's a bit rushed but hey, who am I to complain, I was the one who was late.

Our travel companion was super punctual and nice. You could understand their explanations very well. We were only irritated by their constant phone calls and Whats app writing. But somehow we got used to the tinkering too;) Which was also very cool: It kept us all away who wanted money from us for something. On a city tour like this, it can be annoying when everyone and every hand holds out their hands.
