The guide was friendly and informative, the driver was pleasant, the coach was excellent, however the actual tour was sadly underwhelming. I accept for some people travelling from further afield it might have acceptable to concentrate on the city centre with all the traffic problems that incorporates, but for locals hoping to get a view of unusual locations it was disappointing. Three breaks totalling an hour and twenty five minutes in a four hour tour seems excessive and limited the amount of locations that could be covered.
