It was a nice tour, the guide has a super good and clear English and explains tones of stuff during the 3 hours the tour lasted, he made it very entertaining.

IMHO he focuses too much on mythology and does not dive enough into the actual history facts of the city.

Response from George:

Thanks for the review, we take it as a good review, It is always hard to find the right balance between history and mythology, That day we went for mythology, seemed to the mood of the group
