Excellent. Lots of learning. Great tour guide (blond lady, I apologize I forgot the name), with deep knowledge of the topic and answering all our questions with wisdom, passion and great sense of “realistic humor” ;). We loved it.

Our guide was a young person but had a lot of knowledge about the history of this tour. Also he added here and there some funny and comical notes to lighten up the mood. Recommended 100%
