This is a private tour so only your group is on the tour, We have a 4 person limit so that we can 'socially distance' and show you around town in a meaningful and enjoyable way. We encourage questions and discussion and tailor the content to your interests. Besides showing main sights we also include lovely back streets that we know because we are locals! We have a break in one of a number of really nice local cafes that welcome us because of our small group size. Big tour groups are not allowed entry into the places we go to. If you have a particular interest please let us know when you join the tour and perhaps we can include it. The start time and start pint can be changed if you wish.
