Customer Reviews

  • Emma Roberts

    Value for money and backed up with the staff


    Pleasant and informative tour. Lost one star due to confusion as to were to get bus for visitors to city, perhaps a few more employees in city centre to help with this problem, as not every tour stops at all boarding places.
