    $39 per adult and $29 for a child for a 2 hour guided walk? The 2 museums, 2 local bites???(no idea what that is suppose to mean but my guess is local snacks) plus water does not equal anything I would consider doing for $107 for my family of three. It seems like a money grab to me.

    i realize that numerous tourists are not on the beach or by the pool all day.
    some of those folks might enjoy the tour.

    for my husband and me, i think it would not ever be on our list of things to do.

    Too much time away from the beach...... and too much money for what you get (or don't get)...!

    I think it's great! Most likely not something I would do with the whole family (looking at around $500 for my crew), but it might be something I would do alone or force my hubby to go on. I am sure the info is so much more coming from a guide than just checking out the museums on our own. Plus they encourage you to stay downtown and do lunch and experience more on your own - great for local businesses

    That's a nice dinner or casino money.
    No I am out.

    I think it would be something more appealing to the cruise people

    We wouldn't do this but I have to say when we had friends with us and tried to show them around dowtown, we really didn't know where to go or what to do, poor planning in my part. They were looking for some culture, this would have been nice. I have been wanting to do the museums but Jon has no interest aND it's hard to get away from the beach.
    Always planning our next trip

    I think it's great - and, relative to other city walking tours we've done, not too out of line from a pricing standpoint. I think it would good for first-timers. If anything, they should try and get more local "bites" (or, even better, "sips") as those are always a hit on these kinds of excursions.
