O tour vale a pena pelas informações aprendidas. Mas, infelizmente, como foi tudo destruído, não tem muita coisa para ver. Mas vale muito a pena. O guia foi ótimo.

The Guru G. did not accept that two people were not willing to give money and started discussing in front of the whole group. It’s obviously NOT very polite not to give money at the end of the tour, but the Guru should accept people’s decisions and stop making people feel uncomfortable. Furthermore, the Guru screamed several times at people riding their bikes on the sidewalk which was more than not necessary. We liked the pictures and the book recommendation given by the Guru, but all in all we did not enjoy the tour too much.
