"The merchants that we met were very nice. They had a lot of pride & passion about their community & business. Unfortunately, our tour guide did not. He conducted the tour like he was in a marathon! Everyone was trying to keep up with him, but after a while most of the group was lagging behind. He would stop looking annoyed that he had to wait for them. We've taken many tours in other cities & abroad, & never experienced a tour guide like this. Hopefully he was just having a bad day! He needs to clean up himself & his act if he wants people to recommend his tour. Sorry, not a good experience for us."
