The tour was so well organised and really fun. we went to some amazing places and im so glad we picked this tour.our tour guide Paddy was fantastic he gave us information and some really fun facts but also let us walk around and enjoy the places in our time also. He was a brilliant tour guide and I would happily go on another tour if he was to be our guide. I ended up giving him a huge hug at the end because he had made our day. Please pass on our thanks.
