    Sol, the tour guide was in my opinion quite disorganized and was unable to sustain the attention and interests of the group. With limited time, she could have managed the tour better. At times we would be walking for long periods of time in extreme cold weather. We had to switch buses. She was knowledgeable but lacked people skills. I would prefer someone far pleasant and interesting. We were not able to visit the inside of churches except maybe for one so my goal to compare churches was not fulfilled.

    This was informative , exciting and very absorbing . The walk incompassed the culture of the city and its architecture which is stunning and vibrant. My advice is to do it on the first night in town , it’s set us up for the days head giving us a brilliant overview. The city is so centred that walking is the best way to see it .
