Our guide, she was excellent! Friendly, Professional and very knowledgeable about the history and each site. She managed her time and the group well. Wonderful experience as she made the stories come alive! I would definitely recommend this tour, the Cathedral and the Royal Palace is a great combination for a tour.

Our guide was excellent. Both the palace and the cathedral were great to visit. The palace is the next I have seen. I'm thinking probably because it's still in use.
