Great and informative tour which gives you a whole new perspective of this quarter. Alexandra was an enthusiastic and friendly guide! But be prepared to walk around for two hours. Eat something in advance and bring something to drink. Seems logical, but we had some in the groups who were quite hangry in the end ;)

Guide was very knowledgable about the history of the old city answered all our questions bandage boots advice on other things we might enjoy

Bus driver and ticketing person on each and every bus were amazing! So helpful with suggestions and maps. I love these HO/HO buses!!
