    The tour was really great. The tour guide was very friendly and professional. She shared a wealth of knowledge at all the sites and monuments. I highly recommend this tour. Being on the bus and getting off to see the monuments allows you to cover a lot of sites and seeing the monuments light up was really nice.

    Overall great tour, very informative. The description says to bring headphones, but it does not specify that the headphones are only for translation from English to Spanish or Mung. We had a deaf person in our party, and there was no accommodation for her. Be aware, even though this is a bus tour, still lots of walking.

    Mr Maps was exceptional! His deep knowledge and love for his city were refreshing and enjoyable. He was kind, curtious, and treated his guests like they were coming into his own home. We learned a lot! He even held our 12 and 14 yr olds attention! (miraculous) We saw everything but one memorial (due to construction) and more!! Mr Maps deserves a standing ovation! Seeing the monuments at night was a really amazing experience. It gives you a completely different perspective and is moving.
