We had a lovely time on this tour with our guide Manuela. She was an excellent guide and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing parts of the city we likely wouldn't have gotten to on our own. The market was especially nice to see as well as climbing the tour in the city centre which gave us a great view.

We think it is good to start up at a new place having a guided tour to get a lot of background information. Our experience is that guides are normally widely knowledgeable and we can get answers about a lot of things not only directly related to the tour. This guided tour was no exception and we enjoyed it very much.
