A great way to get your bearings and to see the city. The commentary was mostly up to date - needs updating in parts. It provided an informative sensitive account of this healing city. The inclusion of tea/coffee and scones in the price,at the end...More

Don't waste your money. Lots of suburb driving. Commentary out of date as Austin's is now closed. I think a walk around the walled city would have been time better spent. Bloody Sunday memorial was most interesting stop.
