This tour is meant to be the most kids friendly. Usually the small ones get very tired of all the museums and palaces, so this program is specially designed to keep them interested and not too overwhelmed with facts and figures.
Please note that this tour is always individually created and quoted depending on the number and age of the children in the group. We are always thinking of customized solutions.
