Lovely ride with a great guide. It was raining quite hard at the beginning so the driver Jack offered to pick us up right from the hotel. He was very knowledgeable about the city and did his best to make us comfortable in the ride, for example, by covering and uncovering the car according to the rain. Would definitely recommend!

The guide was very good at picking the most interesting parts of the museum and pulling us through in an intriguing way. It’s an easy place to get overwhelmed but she helped us navigate and really brought the important messages home!
