Very much enjoyed this intimate tour - there were only four guests accompanying our guide. Angus, who was knowledgeable, hit the high points and made the whole affair interesting. This is a 2+ hour walking tour (as advertised), so definitely wear comfortable walking shoes.

Excellent guide Becky with very clear explanations and extremely good patience with my 2 9 years old twin. We had a great educational map and fun morning with her. Highly recommended.
