Quirky and funny, maybe too?
1 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a quirky and funny tour of a city, but it tries a bit too hard and it misses some of the better points of a place in order to make its quirky point. And they could have left out the social banter in order to make some point that has nothing to do with that city.

The good news: it is a different view of a place... more of a locals view? The odder things to see in a city.

The bad news: it tries so hard to be funny, it misses any spontaneous moments. If you have to mug for the camera to let me know that was a joke, you've missed it.

I liked it, but a little goes a long way.
