Very well read and enthusiastic guide who made the tour execellent!

The guide really was great, you noticed that he actually knew all the stuff because he was interested, not because he'd plown through a book just to be able to score a dollar. Despite the weather, we had a very nice walk, museum visit and learnt a lot!
