I've never had such a great guide, Ms. Zander was great, we learned so much that was worth knowing and interesting, and with a lot of humor. It was really fun, many thanks to Martina Zander. Sincerely, Nancy Sharpe

On a small scale, we had a very stimulating tour with an experienced, likeable woman around 58 years old. Thank you very much! SF
