The guided city tour was very interesting showing us the most beautiful and interesting aspects of the city. The driver-guide was very interesting and very knowledgeable about the history of the city. However the vehicle's acoustic system was terrible. We only heard a tiny part of the explanations. A technical upgrade would be more than required..
