This was a very disappointing historical tour given by Natalie! Poor Natalie did not seem very well versed about the historical aspect. Food was good though walking tour very short. The tour did not meet expectations and I would not recommend.

We had a group of about 12 adults. I'm not sure if children are allowed on the tour. I wouldn't recommend it for young children even if children were allowed. Lots of walking, some visits include alcoholic beverages.
