We went on a wonderful day with Heba. Her level of English was fantastic and she had clearly studied and memorised very well all the relevant facts / anecdotes about the sites! We felt very at ease walking around and were able to answer questions freely. Heba had a lovely spirit to her and the day flew by. We managed to pack a lot in, and despite the Library being unavailable due to the Covid-19 situation, Heba improvised really well and took us to some other equally amazing locations.

The tour was very informative and the highlights were there. The lunch break restaurant was great. A little more time to walk around the city or on the promenade would have been nice.
