The tour was fantastic. The young woman that was our initial guide (while on the bus) was excellent and spoke 4 or 5 languages flawlessly. Once we arrived, the onsite guide was equally well spoken in multiple languages and was able to provide an ongoing explanation and answer all questions from the group. The site itself is spectacular and its history fascinating. Highly recommend taking this tour!
