The guide, Alex, was great. She provided lots of information in a lively manner. She recommended some restaurants and bars along the way. Definitely wear comfortable shoes. The Rocks is built on hills, so expect to climb some stairs or walk uphill. Neither was too strenuous though.

Absolutely great!
