Our tour guide Oleg was truly exceptional. His level of knowledge and his friendly nature made the tour an absolute pleasure. His interest was contagious and the tour flew by. It far exceeded our expectations as a great tour guide makes such a difference. I look forward to future trips with Oleg as our tour guide.

After some initial confusion About the Meeting Point we had a very enjoyable and interesting tour with our guide Mattia. He showed to be very knowledgeable and shared all the information (and it was really a lot of information) in a pleasant and entertaining way. With his open and kind personality he made it a great experience for us.
