  • I would highly recommend this tour. At first I thought this was going to be a very large group but we were all divided up into small groups with our own guide. Headphones were provided so it was very easy to hear the guide. The whole tour was interesting. There was a lot of walking. We really enjoyed the boat tour through the canal. Would do that again.
