The driver was excellent and our guide was well informed, kind, and likable. We saw way more of the city than we could have on our own. It was a very efficient, economical, and enjoyable way to see many parts of a complex and fascinating city. The van was very clean and comfortable; the driver supplied us with chilled bottles of water half way through the trip. Kind people are the best people.
