Despite over half the tour taking place in torrential rain, it was a great experience. Penny is just all over the city, full of relevant and interesting knowledge. She's a very attentive guide who goes out of her way to be inclusive and engaging.

Penny is delightful - the perfectly warm, enthusiastic, and informed tour guide. She provides the perfect introduction to this truly likeable city in two brief hours of the morning before it becomes really bustling. Highly recommended.
