Bellissima esperienza, la nostra guida era preparatissima e attenta a raccontarci quello che a noi osservatori non esperti sarebbe sicuramente sfuggito..il bello della guida è stato proprio questo, ci ha fatto entrare in un'altra realtà con i suoi racconti. Precisa, attenta e disponibile, camminare nella meravigliosa moschea insieme a lei è stata un'esperienza magica! Assolutamente consigliata, prezzo più che proporzionato per l'alta qualità del servizio.

Avere una guida qualificata al proprio fianco ti consente di immergerti totalmente nella realtà del posto che stai visitando e di goderne appieno. Molto apprezzabile il fatto che chi ti accompagna nel percorso non ti metta mai fretta e non sia invadente consentendoti di soffermarti davanti a ciò che più ti suscita emozione

La nostra guida era molto preparata, ci ha illustrato ogni zona con la spiegazione accurata di tutto, senza di lei la visita non avrebbe avuto lo stesso valore. Cattedrale che lascia senza fiato per la particolarità e per la bellezza!
