I highly recommend Alexandra - whether you are a local looking for a way to spend your Sunday morning or a tourist discovering the city for the very first time. Although our walk was technically in the city, this is not just another guided tour that takes you past major tourist attractions. Alex put a lot of thought into creating her routes, which seemed to have either a hidden garden or a magnificent view at every turn. Fortunately, Alex was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, so we stopped every now and then so that she could share historical tidbits or tell us about the architecture. And don’t be fooled by the word “urban” in the name – you’ll definitely feel like you’ve had your workout for the day. Needless to say, I was very grateful when Alex led us to Ike’s Place (an amazing sandwich shop) after we finished.
