Everything went very smoothly, the office/meeting point was easy to find, staff were helpful and well organised. The tour itself was really interesting, the guide Francesca was very knowledgeable and we were in a small group (my family of 4 plus 2 other people) which was great. We were equipped with headset microphone (our guide) and audio earphones (the clients) but since we were a small group it wasn't really needed but I can see this is helpful if the group were larger. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with this operator.

Very courteous tour guide who called us a quarter of an hour before the start of the tour if everything was going well. Then picked us up from the taxi rank and the tour could start on time. The stories and explanations were given in a very exciting way by the historian.
