Maria was absolutely fab - extremely knowledgeable and very lovely. Our tour was on a Friday morning in Jan and it was just myself and my partner on the tour so we got the full experience. Maria also gave us some great recommendations for food & drinks away from the tourist traps! Would 100% recommend. The tour gave us the right amount of time to see the Jewish quarter and old town.

Although our guide was holding a stripey umbrella she wasn't very clear to us that she was our guide because it was a central place for a lot of tours to start. Once we found her we were so pleasantly surprised to find that it was just us! The tour was great, personal and covered exactly what we wanted to see.
