"Must do"

I was skeptical about paying this much for this tour. After taking the tour I would pay for it again and again. This tour was even better than the day tours . Only downside is I wish I had more time at the stops. You saw so much and in a totally different way than during the day. I would say it’s a must do.

3 hour tour with 30 minute stops at 3 key monuments to visit and take pictures. Bring a small flashlight for safe walking. Do NOT buy your ticket until day of trip in case of rain. There are always plenty of seats. Enjoy!
