    Fantastic walking tour with Luka our guide who was professional and very knowledgeable. The use of headset radios was a great idea to hear Luka tell the group about the history of the attractions. Easy to arrange on the bus with the bus tour staff.

    Tour was good, its a busy place but the guide made it smooth and informative. The bus ride is not good In busy traffic times..... the information seemed to get out of sync over the ear piece. We could have casually strolled between some of the stops faster. But it was great weather and we weren’t In a rush. So fine enough??
