Excellent Modern Architecture Tour

This was a fantastic Sunday morning walking tour. The good weather was complimenting the tour. Our tour guide Mickey was very knowledgeable and showed us next to the famous architectural buildings some very unusual not so well known buildings. The group was very small (3 people), which I really liked. It was like a personalized tour for a smaller price. I can recommend this company. The service is excellent and fast.

Excellent, detailed tour.

We were lucky in that it was just the three of us. Our guide Warren was really friendly and spoke English in a way that was really easy for us to understand, and he also took our requests into account. We had a highly interesting morning. Due to many questions on our part Warren extended the tour by about an hour at no additional cost!! The tour was really great, even for us laypeople.
