Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and a great story teller. My friends and I were really lucky as it was only us on the tour and it was a great way to see the city. Would recommend.

Sorry for delay as well. Excellent private tour. Peter was great and extremely knowledgeable with plenty of stories. It cost us 40 pounds all up for the two of us. Well worth it !
