Not really worth it. You could have hired a cab or driver to take you to the same sights. We really didn't get much information. At the end of the tour, the guide was pressuring people to walk back to their hotels instead of taking them back. The bus used was really pretty cramped, like it had an extra seat and we had trouble squeezing down the aisle. Skip this one, take something else.
