We took the tour with our guide John McNulty who was very passionate and informative and delivered his narrative in a very professional manner. The tour lasted about 70 minutes and was excellent from start to finish. Highly recommended.

The travel tour takes you through the walled city and you get a first hand account of the past and recent history of this small town. So rich with history and so passionate a tour guide, this should not be missed.
