Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The final stop atop the observation platform allowed for the best visual explanation of the siege and associated skirmishes.

It was just too hard to hear her. She talked really quiet and it was even harder walking amongst the leaves and them crackling. She had good information but unless you were directly next to her she was impossible to hear.

Hour and a half with a very knowledgeable speaker giving a walking tour of historical buildings including tales of ghost haunting. Great way to become familiar with the historical buildings around market square. Great to take visitors to the city.
