This one day tour is ideal for those who have just one day and want to see the major sights. This is a lot of monuments in one day, and I only recommend it if you only have this one day to see the sights. Otherwise a more leisurely two day itinerary is better. We can customize this tour with airport transfers, hotel or other activities to suit your needs.
