This was a fantastic tour! With only 7 people, it was like being on a private tour. They take you all over the city where you see the major sites. Sam was great as our guide, being so informative and taking our pictures at all the stops (and you see all the major tourist places and others you didn’t know about). She was helpful telling where the best places to go, see, eat and drink. I’m not a guided tour traveler usually but this one Id go on.
