Excellent tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable, fun, personable, exciting, and gave us a fantastic day long our many stops. We learnt about history, art, culture and so much more. I am well traveled and have high standards, and am nearly impossible to please when it comes to paid tours. I was extremely happy with our tour guide - he was great, and the coach driver, was the like Michael Jordan of drivers; truly excellent... Time and money well spent
