While we were pleased with the price, length and concept of the tour, we were somewhat disappointed with the live commentary. I would have expected to learn more about the history, the demographics, the character of each area visited. For a good portion of the tour, the commentary basically noted the name(s) of the areas and we were told that that particular guide liked shopping or eating there.
