Tour was well conducted with a knowledgeable tour guide (Christina). She provided the necessary foundations for us to appreciate our return visits to the main city centre sites the next day. However, the sound quality on the vox boxes used during the tour could have been better. Single earpieces were not sufficient to cancel out street noise making it difficult to hear the guide at times, even when volume on earpieces was at max. Twin earpieces would have been better.

This was a good tour. There were a lot of us so we had earpieces to hear the guide but the sound quality was pretty poor so I stayed close to the guide to hear her normally! We walked around a few central streets. The guide was very informative and void answer all our questions.

This was a brillant overview of this wonderful city!! The tour guide firstly was easy to find in the square, helpful, informative and easy to understand. Lots of the places she showed us, she advised us if we wanted to know more or interested in more activities to do - we could come back or buy a ticket to see more ie a museum or botanical garden etc. Good pace and just very interesting to explore!
