    tour was on a Sunday and several places we wanted to see were closed. State houses, library, markets all closed. Need to reflect this in your literature and price.

    Was a great tour through the city and enjoyed seeing the different neighborhoods. Guide was lovely and new her stuff.
    Not exactly what we expected - we thought it might be more geared towards the kids and mythology, but it was still a good tour.
