Every guide should be like Ian. First, he knows his stuff--VERY well. While this was a slightly Jewish-centric tour, we got a great appreciation for the city and it's neighborhoods. Also, he is connected. The locals stop him, he's personally involved in the fabric of the city which gives him insight few have (Google him!) And finally--he is FUN & engaging. My family didn't want the walking tour to end. Ian is so animated and uses personal experiences to add texture--he's that good. Recommend highly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mike, i loved meeting your family and you. Somehow it felt like you were an old friend of mine! Stay in touch! Kind regards Ian.
