Interesting tour however I would have preferred less of the introduction and market visit and seen more of the interesting buildings in the city centre.

Leo led an informative tour of the city. His knowledge was good, and his English was easy to understand. He left lots of time for questions. Tasting in the market was a great idea. Lots of recommendations.
