This is fun for adults and children. A nice ride hitting the landmarks in the city. A nice 45-60 min stop at Fisherman's Bastion. I wish there had been a bit more time to explore this area - maybe an extra hour. It was great to have transportation pick us up at our hotel in the morning. The tour guide was very pleasant.

Good as a taster of main sights. a very interesting tour with a knowledgeable guide. unfortunately it poured with rain the whole time which would have been more enjoyable.

I loved this tour and our guide. There was a mix up with the pick up time from my hotel (not the fault of tour company) and the guide was kind enough to wait on me. The guide was very knowledgable, spoke excellent English and showed us many beautiful sites. Perfect amount of time for tour, not too long but not too short. Just the right amount of walking and bus riding. I highly recommend this tour to anyone.
