What a day! Our guide was so...
Janis H
, Jun 2018
What a day! Our guide was so knowledgeable. He helped us navigate through an incredible number of sites without getting bogged down and spending so much time at one place that we would miss something else. He paced us very well, but without ever making us feel rushed. It was perfect. Absolutely perfect. He was there when we needed him, but gave us space to enjoy the experience on our own. Perfect balance of delivering information and allowing us to discover things for ourselves. I have never had anyone do as well. If I could give a higher than 5 star rating, I would.
