We were lucky to have a tour guide all to ourselves. It was nice to have someone escort us around old town. However, I didn’t learn much about the actual history of the town or the buildings. The guide only talked about the current culture. Buyer beware, this tour says it includes tickets to the boat and funicular. Even in the fine print it says it’s included in the price. But our tour guide made us pay for the boat ourselves. And because our tour was on a weekend, the funicular ride was closed. Overall it was pretty much a let down. I’m still waiting for someone to reimburse me for the tickets I have pay for out of pocket...
