The tour was very interesting, the guide told a lot about the city and its history and he answered all our questions in detail. Furthermore he gave us time to take pictures so the tour was very relaxed and we could enjoy the city.

We loved the tour with Fernando. He gave us a lot of background information about the history of the city and buildings. His personal insights into some of the towns history was very helpful.
