Very interesting tour. The guide was knowledgeable and gave a lot of information on the history of the city and the particular sites we visited. Thank you, too, to our driver who suggested additional routes to bypass detours and, by doing so, showing us additional sites around the city. I also appreciated the staff member who assisted many of us to find our way around the pickup point and ticketing office to sign in.

We had the best historian as our tour guide (Larry), a walking encyclopedia with the most gracious personality. He is so proud of the city! You need to clone this man. Our driver who lost his voice during the day was very skillful and made us feel safe. I recommend this tour for the quality, value and organization. The ladies at the counter were slightly stressed. They may need a little in service on customer care.

A perfect ride. Angelo the driver is full of humor and attention. François the guide is rich in anecdotes, knowledge and open to any questions...I took lots of notes because I love all this little knowledge 😊.

Everything was perfect! Angelo and Richard were the best and he came to work on his birthday! Love that! Happy Birthday Richard 🎂 See you in Tampa 🌞

It was fabulous! Awesome tour guide. Very informative and super fun. Highly recommend
