Good food, good history; but walking tour needs to be longer. I felt I was being left behind--TOO rushed. Needed to be at the next site in 10 minutes. What? I just sat down! Oh well, have to move on. NEXT!!!

Would have been 5 stars but felt a little rushed going from place to place. Restaurants were good, history was fine but guide (no names) was always checking his watch and 10 paces in front of our group. Maybe tour needs to be longer.
