I did 3 tours with Verneus, and this one was the best. Lots of complicated recent history and information clearly explained by Paul. Highly recommended

Don't miss it. It was a perfect introduction to the history of the city and its link with 20th. centry history in general. As a history teacher for over 40 years, I've come to recognize those who know their stuff and reach the 'right' conclusions.
