Wonderful way to tour the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We got to get off the tuk tuk to walk and explore in a few places, which was nice - a good mixture of driving and walking. I liked how it was open air and a small private tour for our family of four.

Great guide, very well organized and time measured tour part. Amazing food and wines and absolutely incomparable view of the city and the magic of the sunset over the sea. I do highly recommend this tour!

Great aquarium, nice dolphin show, impressive exhibits. It was a nice way to spend Christmas day. We especially liked the shark tunnel, where sharks and rays swim above you.

Very good , didn’t know you had combined the two routes and square is not open to traffic but didn’t stop us doing everything we will be back next year

Our guide Inga was great. The visit to the 33rd floor for tapas and wine was very enjoyable, although I believe the experience was overpriced.
