A Recent Review of this tour

Mario did a great job. Picked me up promptly at the hotel and took me straight to a tour of the canals. He wanted to start straight when they opened which was definitely the correct approach because crowds arrived soon afterwards. I only had a few hours before my flight out but we still had time to tour the old part of the city before he took me out to the airport.
