    • Great price for a great experience

      Claudia Casavecchia, United States, 13/May/2019
    • Covers the whole of the city, making it easy to see and do everything.
      The only downside for me, is when the guide asks for tips and gratuities.
      I would happily give something, and do, when they are interesting, and they don’t ask.
      The ones that ask, don’t get!
