Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 5 reviews

Drivers were friendly and helpful. It seemed that there was not a planned agenda and we circled around a lot through side streets and back alleys versus going directly from point A to point B. Drivers were informative if you asked questions but, there was limited presentations at the various stops, otherwise nothing was offered.

Very nice to discover the city differently. Little information on the operation of the site (no application to download) upstream. But it still worked very well.

It was a very nice city tour and we enjoyed it a lot! I would highly recommend it to everyone! :-)

Very nice once again, it is the ideal activity to begin your trip with!

Interactive way to get to know the attractions . Well designed game.
