Our guide was most knowledgeable and thoughtful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and whole experience, her talks in the museums and on the sites themselves were full of information given in such a way that we gained much knowledge. She was so enthusiastic and justifiably proud of her Country. A credit to the company. Lyn and John
