It was a wonderfully guided city tour. Heard a lot of history, unusual and interesting things. With the city guide, we quickly had the feeling that we were in very good hands. We went through some things again, always remembering what we had heard. Just great. Even if Oban doesn't appear beautiful, we have grown fond of her. Not least because of the great city tour. We'll definitely be back.
