"A" mode and Auto-ISO

I am new to Sony and the APS-C cameras (Nikon 810) and recently purchased my daughter's a6500 (so she can get the a7riii). Camera seems ideal for my trip to China this week, however I'm in the process of acquainting myself with the many advanced features that Sony has placed in their cameras.

Since I'll be on walking tours, I want to utilize those features and leave the "Event Photography" at home. With the 18-70 Zeiss lens, using Aperture Preferred and Auto-ISO (100-3200) appears to be an ideal setting for Point and Shoot type photography (oh yes, back button focus implemented).

For those of you with experience with the a6500, is that a good setting for most on the run image capturing? Or should I manage the ISO as I would do with the D810?
