    A special mention for Alex, an outstanding organizer and guide. A completely original and above all stress-free discovery of the city. We take the time, we have the time for discovery. We knew the city but Alex showed us places off the beaten track. A course full of surprises, ended with a great mezze. To do absolutely! Thank you very much Alex, your are the best!

    The guide informed about everything historical. I thought, however, that I would casually ride the e-bike in a group of people through the city and the others could listen to the historical. Unfortunately I was the only one and that bothered me a little. Maybe it was also because it was my last day and I was just out and about and maybe had planned too much.

    We had a great day with Alex and can recommend the tour to anyone who wants to discover the city in a different way. You can see all the important and historical cornerstones of the city in a nutshell. The tour ends with a delicious meal in the local restaurant. thanks Alex
