The tour was very interesting and lovingly designed. My kids (12, 10 and 10) really liked it. They learned a lot and enthusiastically told friends and acquaintances about the tour. Big praise! Thank you for the great tour!

We did the walking tour on Saturday morning. The guide told us a lot of informative things and answered my daughter (12 years) and her questions. The child's interest really came first. Any time!
