Our guide was Phil a very nice guy and very helpful for any explanation, we were a little worried about the cold but with the blankets made available it wasn't a problem. The tour is very interesting and you have the opportunity to see places that you would hardly be able to see on foot. I highly recommend this experience!

Amazing visit to the military fortress. Very interesting tour in the canals and the different architectural styles of the houses that border them. Great time
