We went on a bus tour. I wasn't impressed. We needed to have a place to park our bodies on the way home. I wouldn't go there again.

Walking is the best way to travel through the Old City. You see more and don't have to worry about parking. The numerous store employees are happy to help you and take care of your needs.
