Excellent tour. Well worth the money - the tour, along with the free book and it’s map helped us explore the city during the rest of our stay. Ann and Maria, our guides, did a wonderful job. Great fun too!

I really didn’t expect that, but Jonathan’s love for his City is infectious. I fell in love with this city, with its old and new faces. So many things to discover!
I will definitely visit again!
