This Tour was just wonderful and amazing. Something will be unforgettable. Well organized and the crew are just nice and so kind. And every station we stopped was just in time. Thanks a lot

Overall it was a nice experience. Considering that now is October, it is quite windy and cold in the morning, so I suggest to be prepared in terms of clothing.

very insightful. we probably spent a bit too much time in the opera house, and not enough time in the old city.

It was great, a tour all over the city to see all historical monuments.

Everything easy to get to and use, friendly staff on ship.
