This tour was led by a true guide who shared her knowledge with our small group in a really friendly and helpful way. She took us into any shop or building that caught our interest while staying with the script on the food stops and tour through the old town. One tip- tell your cab driver that you are going to the old fortress entrance. If not he will drop you far short of your meet up and b.s. you that he can’t drive to that spot. It’s a common trick they pull.

George was engaging, safely collecting and returning us to the hotel giving loads of information enroute. Eri escorted us around the mill giving an excellent tour which was paced well and inclusive to all. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
