I couldn't really imagine it, but I have to say, I'm really excited about "getyourguide", I did the Romeo and Juliet tour and I was taken to streets that I wouldn't have found and it was very informative. Will definitely use getyourguide again on my next vacation. Thanks! The only thing that bothered me a bit or I would have liked more information was about the story of Romeo and Juliet. But otherwise TOP! LG Katja

Difficult to use with 4 people. Great concept. Map would adjust causing each turn to put you in the wrong direction.
