Christopher was a wonderful guide. He was very informative, patient with all of our questions and knowledgeable. He met us on time....only glitch was he was at the front door of the hotel, we were on a bench outside the front door. Perhaps the guide could have a lanyard or something to help us find him. Maybe we should have had a flower in our lapel or something!! :). Christopher even called a taxi for us and waited to make sure the driver knew exactly where to drop us off. All in all, well worth the cost and the time spent.

We did the group sunset tour on 10/07/2022, and we had the tour guide Mike. We would definitely recommend the tour, such a fun way to see the city. Mike was a really good tour guide and made the whole experience enjoyable, and the facts and history about the city was really interesting.

Very knowledgeable guide, I told her my interests and she accommodated them into the bike tour. I throughly enjoyed it.

Lots of fun ane great sightseeing on the water. The tour guide is very experienced.
