The City Tour guide was terrific! Very knowledgeable and great sense of humor!

March 21, 2023

The tour got off to a late start but driver/guide made up for that with his great knowledge. His presentation was informative with a little humor mixed in. We throughly enjoyed our tour. We also enjoyed looking around the tourist center while we waited.
