Top. Well-prepared tour, with a night watchman who carries out his job seriously and yet with a lot of wit. Unfortunately I can't give myself more than 5 stars because he deserves more. Thank you Mr. night watchman for the great tour.

We were shown around the city by a very personable night watchman. He gave us all sorts of interesting information about life and the buildings in the district that cannot be read anywhere else

Very simple and practical. The stories are short and to the point. Very good for exploring the city.

Very informative city tour. Guide was very authentic and it was a lot of fun to listen to him.

Very amusing and informative for locals too. Thanks very much!
