Very enjoyable tour with Louis. We learned a lot about the architecture and the evolution of the city. Louis kept a perfect pace. He is easy to understand and maintains the right volume for a street tour. We covered a lot of history and territory in our 3 hours. He was very happy to make dining and shopping recommendations as well as recommending other activities. We definitely recommend this tour.
