It was a very nice tour, our guide, Matt, shared a lot of knowledge with us, historical and cultural. It was a great asset. The atmosphere was great, a nice group. I would definitely recommend the tour. The guide was very responsive to the needs of the group and was extremely friendly. Seemed very personal.
