Excellent service

We were picked up on time by our driver who was very kind to us and not at all aloof (in comparance with a former driver of a previous tour we took with another company). We explored the city and our guide was very knowledgeable and shared many important stories and information with us. He made us feel very comfortable and we quickly became friends. All in all, it was a great experience that we would totally repeat!
