Good tour with Sarah and her friend (sorry, I've forgotten your name!) We were taken to some parts of the old quarter that we probably would not have visited otherwise. Some interesting historical facts along the way. A nice way to spend a few hours.

Very disappointing experience. The guide didn’t turn up and I couldn’t reach him under his phone number. We waited for 20 min and then left. We found it very rude.

Lynn was a great guide. She spent the full time showing us many interesting neighbourhoods and answered many questions we took us to a great local shop for sweets.
