The tour started promptly with a manageable group of 10-15 people. The guide introduced himself as a history graduate student who could answer any questions we had. He was indeed quite knowledgeable and led us on a leisurely pace through the sites. The tour lasted 3 hours, half an hour beyond the allotted 2.5. However, it didn't feel long until maybe the last half hour or so, the guide was so informative and did a great job tying the sites together into a coherent narrative. This tour is definitely for history buffs and would likely not be as enjoyable for casual sightseers. The guide found places for us to sit down a couple times but it was mostly walking and standing, so wearing good shoes is highly advised.

We had an amazing tour. Martin our guide was extremely knowledgeable and great company. We were in a small group so had plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know others in the group. I would recommend this trip to anyone. William and Dawn
