Charlene brought us through the fascinating tour of the history and culture of the city through the perspective of a local. The complementary tea was badly needed after the chilly weather! I would 100% recommend it for anyone visiting the city.More

Our guide was full of interesting information but amusing with it. He was very fair when it came to the more contentious issues. I would recommend it to anyone, although it might perhaps a little long for small children.
