We left half way through the tour...

We left half way through the tour, it's not what you think it is. We thought this tour would be instructive and fun. Instead we saw the outside of the opera, some narrow walkways, and the local supermarket. We were so bored and insulted by the tour guide we left halfway through. We had stopped at a small square where she started explaining the different floors of buildings and instead of explaining the cost of living or the history, she began to criticize some tourists for sitting in the square to eat a lunch. She exclaimed this isn't disney world people actually live here how dare tourists sit in a square and have lunch. Did she not realize she was leading a tour group of tourists? She seemed miserable and very critical of anything and everything. It was also a bilingual tour which didn't make matters any better. Would never recommend this tour.
