A Recent Review of this tour

Eva-Maria did a FABULOUS job. The rain, wind, and cold couldn't stop us from enjoying a full 5 hour walking tour. Little driving was done so we got from point A to point B faster. She kept our attention at bay ,and our minds wondering and then our appetites feed with an AMAZING lunch. The atmosphere where we ate was eventful, and the food was YUM... So as you can tell all 5 of us enjoyed ourselves very much, and could have stayed longer. Thank you for an amazing time even with the cold weather...
