    The tour and the food were equally facinating, and jet overshadowed by the guide, Dante!! (And his Swedish is not half bad)

    No, just the east side neighborhood. You won't find any that will cover the entire city. Take all the small tours and do it one neighborhood at a time.

    Yes, we sat at every spot but the final one. Not a taxing tour at all. I recommend it.
