This tour was a very unique experience , super fun. You get to drive through the city and see it from a different angle . All the guides, Roberto and his son were very nice, ice cream was a nice addition. The tour operator was able to accommodate us even though we lost our time due to flight delay. 100% would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a thrilling experience.

At first we weren't aware that we weren't driving ourselves. It was great and the guides asked before we started which sights we had already seen in order to then show us other areas. Cannon shot at 12 o'clock also went well.
