I really like the concept of the tour. They give you a prepared trip and give you some information about what you see. You can walk as fast as you want, take pictures as long as you want and take another route if you want. I really like that and recommend it for everyone, especially since the highlights can all be easily reached by foot and it is doable in one day. For me it could have more information but I will definitely do more of those tours.
