A Recent Review of this tour

Joel met us in our hotel lobby exactly as arranged and promptly began our tour. He is a friendly and courteous man with an excellent command of English and happily answered our many questions about the art and history of his city. With a sense of humor and openness to our interests, Joel pointed out the interesting features of the Old Town and also to the economic & historical changes of the city along our route--for example, explaining the need for updating the lock system under serious renconstruction
