Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the city. I found myself questioning other guides later in the trip who didn't know as much as our guy! Fun tour with interesting stops.

This is a two hour walking tour that really gave us a fine feel and look at anumber of sites and places that we probably could never have done by ourselves. And we are not first-timers to this lovely old city.
