    We had a great experience right from start to end

    It was great to get directly in contact with our personal guide from the beginning and we experienced excellent service. the guide was very professional and knew his stuff and conveyed it in an interesting way with a good deal of humour and historical perspective. He kept the whole family captured, and the 3 hours went far too quickly.
