Great tour on 06/10/22! We would recommend not having breakfast beforehand, it was more than just appetizers and we were more than full afterwards. Everything tasted very good, our tour guide was very nice and was able to tell a lot... Altogether it was 3 1/2 very entertaining hours and the price-performance ratio was definitely right...
