The tour operator was very nice and helpful but do not like walking blocks away to get our van. You stand there waiting with no place to sit.

A great way to see the outskirts of town. Stops were the President’s House, Perlan, the Concert Hall ending at the Lutheran Church. From there you walk the old town center or return to your pick up spot. Christina was our driver and guide. Clear and informative. Efficient little trip.

This is a very nice tour. We saw most of the city and learned a great deal about it. Would recommend as a way to familiarize oneself with the city.

Not worth it.

We spent a lot of time seeing things that just weren't that great. The guide was good. It would be worth for someone who wanted to get an idea of what there is to see and then enough time to go back and see those things that you liked.
