If you don't like the tour, give at least a 5. If you enjoy the tour, give a 10 euro or more. It is always up to you. Good luck and enjoy the tour.

Take them! They like to act like everything is boring, but I think they will get quite a bit out of the tour. Our guide was a former actor and added several theatrical touches. History came to life.
