Shelly was an absolute gem of a tour guide! She was super pleasant picking us up for our guided tour. Shelly was very informative during our tour and even took us to the most amazing little bakery for lunch!

The tour was amazing. The only thing is there is limited time for pictures and shopping. The tour is on a time schedule so depending on traffic and lines there isn't always a lot of extra time.
