Sunday afternoon my husband and I took the city tour with driver Sharon and had a delightful experience. Sharon presented much interesting and detailed information with clarity and good humour. She put a lot of herself into the tour and it was obvious that she enjoys her work. Guests were treated with kindness and respect.
