Every dish was mouthwatering.. !! Thank you!

Leo the guide really explained the intricacies and historical background of the tunnels, and he encouraged us to climb down into the tunnels to experience just a little what the fighters had to go through. Same for the city tour. Can't recommend this tour enough.

we had a great time on the tour, the company were really flexible and it's a great way to see lots of sites in the city in a day, would highly recommend! Mike our tour guide was very knowledgeable

The sight seeing was great from the top of the bus at sunset! It was called a hop on hop off tour but we did not get to do this and was just a round trip of the city
