BEST TOUR EVER! Truly the most special tour because of our amazing tour guide, Nomi. He was extremely attentive, genuinely loves what he does & made it very enjoyable for us. Every portion of the tour was perfect, wouldn’t change a thing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! 1000000/10!!!!!

Great, but there was no clear explanation of where to park and where exactly to go. We had parked in the farthest parking garage and from there there were no signs in description. Only after hours of walking and asking questions did we arrive at the place. Shame!
