See sights that the rest of the crowds are missing! This is the tour you didn't know you needed. Go inside buildings you'd never guess are publicly accessible and see interiors that will literally take your breathe away. Words don't do justice to the beauty of the interiors

Thanks so much for this review! I always love getting compliments from teachers. What we do is definitely teaching -- like mobile teaching in a beautiful environment. :) So I appreciate the praise from fellow teachers. And I love knowing you're going back home with a newfound curiosity about your own city. Have a great time exploring!
