Best time to visit
If you want to visit during the less crowded times, then September to November is the time to go. Winter season is peak season here and can get crowded. However, it can get very hot during the summer months, so don't visit then if heat isn't your friend.
It's easy to walk around downtown, but if you're planning to head further afield then you'll need to either hire your own wheels or take a taxi. Check your tour for full details as they may include transfers.
Just be aware of your surroundings. Make sure your valuables are safe and not on show.
