    • It was fun to see the whole city & our tour guide was excellent. We got off at the 5th St market, had lunch and then got back on the next bus & finished the rest of the tour.

      Amy Barrick, United States, 19/Jul/2019
    • Really entertaining guides and drivers, goes to nearly all the must-see places. Only gripe is that the last bus leaves at 5pm, so if you wanted to stroll around the sights longer, you're on your own.
