Everything worked out great, although we booked at relatively short notice (a few hours in advance). Our guide knew the city very well, told and showed us interesting things that we would not have discovered ourselves and took the time to answer our questions. Was a very nice and interesting tour, highly recommended!

We had a great afternoon, really enjoyed the walking tour and everything we’ve learned along the way. Thanks a lot!

Great guide!

Bebu was my guide and he was amazing! I recommend it! Really nice tour!
