Felt cheated

For the money asked. There was no experience. No was at the meeting point. Local company did not pickup the phone. Just couldn’t figure out how to make it work. No headphones no audio. Would never recommend to anyone.

Some info, but overall a bit dry and short.

Other city tours were canceled because of Pride, so we opted to take this self-guided one instead. The guide points out general features and dates but nothing specific about the buildings itself that need to be viewed from a certain point of view. As a result, you might as well look up some pictures and just listen to the audio from a distance. Actually being there has no added benefit, and the guide's voice, while adequate, was dry and a uninspiring.

In your own time

This is by far the most resourceful tour I have done. Easy to download and worked well.
