Absolutely wonderful. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and are able to advise not only on where to get a great meal but also on fantastic activities and events going on in and around the city. Definitely worth taking the time to visit.

She was really nice... More

Perfect for any tourism related information. Prices are higher here than other shop downtown. Stop here before you try any other tourism expedition or location.
