The tour leader let the participants take over with way too many questions and observations. I felt like the tour lost it’s focus. I wish the leader had been more in charge.

While the tour leader was knowledgeable and pleasant to listen to, two hours is a little too long for me.

It was an interesting and fun tour. However, the guide could have been a little louder at times.
