It's a very basic tour to know a bit about the city. For us, it was a bit disappointing that the guide is not a professional tour guide (this was just a side job), so the information given was mainly "following a script" and we were not really answered when asking for side information. We have joined many walking tours when we have been travelling and unfortunately this one was not meeting our expectations.
