What people are saying about Ledra Street

It is worth it

The tour could have more points to visit, however our guide was fantastic. The only problem we had was that the bus was delayed and they didn't give us a number to call, even though I asked for it by Mail. The bus ended up showing up 15 minutes late, there are some glitches in the organization.

A great tour guide, who proceeded in a super structured manner throughout the day and always provided exciting information. Very personable! Great tour even at 40 degrees. We were thrilled

Really great guide! Safe driver. Full on day. Saw so much.
