Highly recommend this tour.
There were showers on the day but because of the proximity of the sites to each other it wasn't an issue and we didn't get wet, yet we still had the upside of the area being less busy because of the rain.
The duration was just right, we wanted to see the sights but also were on holiday so wanted to relax and not be on our feet all day, a perfect filler between lunch and dinner!

It was just two of us on the tour so had a lot of face-time and interaction with the tour guide who was knowledgeable, good communicator, witty and I felt I got a lot more than a regurgitation from Wikipedia. I would search this guide out if I were going back for more.
