Mathew was a wonderful guide; very informative, answered a thousand additional questions - so - very patient as well. There was no rushing through the stops and he was personable as well. He made me feel as though I were a friend of his - showing me around his town. Highly recommended. I did the 2 hour tour.

Very nice. Peter did a great job explaining things and the ride was smooth. Even though it was quite cold, a blanket was provided and the seat was comfortable. We also could go places somewhere the boats and horses could not. Would do it again.

Very friendly, and very informative. Had our best interest in the cold and getting through crowds in the Square, making sure we understood the history he was telling us.

Went beyond tourist stops by going farther out into neighborhoods and providing interesting history.

good and convenient way of seeing more in less time.
