Myself and my 3 teenage daughters did this tour and it was great. Our guide was fun and could gauge when the girls attention was slipping with all of the historical facts.

Very informative guide but not at all engaging for the kids, as expected due to it being a 'kids tour'. Also expected it to be less crowded at that time but it was packed!! The kids were lost the moment we got there unfortunately and quite a large outlay of $$.

The tour was good and the tour guide was really good. Only negative was a confusion of where the meet point was. But the get your guide team worked with me to locate my guide.
