When my companion and I booked the tour we were unaware we would be the only two people. The guide stopped multiple times to explain history before pointing out related buildings. Very well done.

A long, well guided tour of thousands of years of history. The artifacts are gloriously displayed. Our guide Nasr was friendly and scholarly. Could easily have come back a second day.
