Would highly recommend doing this tour, the value for money is fantastic, you get to visit so many places and do not have to wait in any queues. Our guide was fantastic (I didn’t catch her name) but going with a guide is super beneficial and I’m so glad we did.

Our tour guide, Luena, was excellent. She was able to engage participants in her walk and talk, as well as provide insight into the historical significance of what we were seeing. Plenty of time was provided to take pictures throughout the tour, and we lucked out with good weather. we had originally booked a tour with an underground tour- but it was cancelled last minute. That being said, this was an excellent replacement.
