Our guide was really knowledgeable and tailored our tour to suit our interests and focus. She delivered everything in a really interesting manner and was engaging. It was a brilliant way to discover the city and gave us the knowledge to explore further on our own. The price was really reasonable and I would have been happy to have paid more. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Simply brilliant!
