Unfortunately experience with our guide was not a good fit with our family. She had a difficult time building concrete narratives and histories that "came alive" to us, instead painting broader themes about the development of The Rocks and, we felt, glossing over a lot of the more fun historical details. On top of that, her narrative style was a little disorganized...we didn't feel the flow of the narrative as we progressed.
Excellent tour with outstanding guide. He held his own with a group of academics and was extremely knowledgeable about a whole range of subjects.
Was good, very flexible Mark was knowledgeable about all of our questions eg trees architecture social justice, without overwhelming us. We avoided crowds and he adjusted the pace to my kids and mom; similar to excellent Rome tours
