Daniel was a great tour guide. We were able to visit four places. All very nice but had to buy all your own drinks. Not sure what the $37/person was for. Had a good time but would not do again.

I am not impressed by this operation. First, when we purchased the tickets, I received no confirmation email or other information. We had to call and email the company before receiving our confirmation details. Then on the day of our tour, the owner called to...More

The tour guides didn't show up, charged my credit card, stated they didn't charge my card, and then took forever to process refund.

I have done these tours in several cities. What I didn't expect was to pay for the drinks..typically you get a drink and if you'd like to order larger or more, you pay. Also the website stated appetizers included. They were not. The history portion...More
