A top tour. Our guide was charming, funny & insightful and made the trip extra special. My fellow guests were great too. Make sure you don’t eat too much breakfast if you’re doing it at 10am…. there’s so much delicious food. I’d highly recommend doing this tour. Plus it’s a great way to orientate yourself with the city. 10/10!
