    Perfect chance to see outside of the city centre. Stopped in amazing places with good photo opportunities, the perfect weather helped. The coffee and cake stop was a welcome alternative to the boat trip. The tour guide Lizabeth was brilliant, really informative and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend. Only confusion that the ticket said Gray Line tours, but was actually through Panorama. Good saving through this website. Poorly organised at the start getting people into minibuses but fine afterwards
