Received a cancellation email the day of our tour at 1:39 AM. Scrambling last minute, I booked the tour I was able to find. I find it unacceptable that we are required to cancel 24 hours in advance yet our booked tour was cancelled 10 hours before it was supposed to start!

Absolutely amazing! The tour guide Georgio was brilliant! He really knew his stuff, 3 hours I think is the perfect amount of time. I’m glad I did the tour. It did end up being 10 people instead of 30 but 10 was a much better number. The tours of 30 people around us looked too chaotic and you wouldn’t get the same personal experience as we did. Would definitely recommend doing this
