Had such an amazing time on the tour!! It was postponed by a day because of torrential rain making the cobbles too slippery to ride on. But I was given a mobile number so I could keep in contact with a member of staff to rearrange! The tour was so interesting, fun and well planned. The guide’s english was amazing so I understood absolutely everything!! Would recommend and would definitely do again!
You sometimes doubt where you should be but they were waiting nicely. Good instruction and very nice tour. Really recommended !!
Great guide, and fun experience! Spent plenty of time for training. The guide spoke a little fast and blurred at times, but ok.
