We had a lovely day out with Carla. She took us to the best places in each of the 3 towns so we saw everything. The towns were lovely with very good photo opportunities. Carla took lots of pictures for us like a personal photographer. She was very pleasant company and very knowledgeable. Thank you Carla for a wonderful day.

Carla was a friendly knowledgeable guide and gave us a wonderful tour. She picked out a restaurant for lunch which was good. She met us with a Mercedes to drive us to all the different places. She’s a good driver. We would definitely recommend her as a guide.
