The building itself was really wonderful, but the meeting place was not friendly at all. I arrived earlier than the scheduled time, so I managed to get there, but since it was my first time there, I wish they had made it easier to understand how to get in.

It was perfect! There were 8 of us and we had 3 wonderful supervisors who were not only courteous but also very entertaining. The activity is highly recommended and is also great as a JGA (Bachelorette Activity). P.S. The wine and snacks were delicious!

No better way to see the city, very helpful and knowledgeable guide. Riding ebikes makes it a breeze.
