My wife and I were very impressed with Jo our guide. She was very knowledgeable, entertaining and easy to understand. Jo made sure we were well briefed as to what to expect and got us some great vantage points for photos. We highly recommend her.

Good for each other. Sometimes it is a challenge to find the stops. It is not clearly indicated on the map. Received some nice information during the ride. I also did the boat trip with my 48 hour ticket: it went perfectly.

need personal headsets with guide having microphone. it was difficult to hear at times which led to information missed.

our tour guide was very impressive with his history knowledge. He had a real fair for telling the stories.

Nice guy (Nonny), nice tour, interesting explanations inspiring recommendations!
