    Guide was very good but the tour only lasted just over an hour when it was advertised as two hours. Also, we nearly missed it as the booking information didn’t explain that guides would be wearing ‘City Experience’ shirts and the pick up point wasn’t exactly where we were told. We only found out when we went to ask them if they knew where our tour was five minutes before it was due to depart!
