Literally an excellent tour
Nov 2019 • Friends
The tour is amazing. It covers aspects of history, philosophy, politics and even technology in such an interesting and inspiring way. I learned so many interesting things. It’s right for anyone who is even slightly interested in the city one is visiting. If I ever come back, I’ll definitely book it again. Thank you so much for making our stay have so much more impact.
