A Recent Review of this tour

Perfect. I just wish we had more time. Lais is personable, knowledgable, passionate about her city, and eager to share. She kept us informed without overwhelming us with trivia. We started later than planned due to chaotic conditions as we got off our cruise ship; one of our 8-person group was about 45 minutes further back in the long line to get off. Lais adapted well, managed our timing, and made sure we saw the key sites that we had signed up for. I could not ask for a better guide.
