    Everything was so fun. Nadia was great

    Christina was great! it ended up just being my bf and me but we had such a good time. we got to have a more one on one experience and take our time. and the places we stopped were not on our radar and the food and drinks we tried were definitely not things we would've ordered on our own. but we loved it all! we even took leftovers back to our hotel. we got some great photos and an awesome mini tour of the city.
