Olga provided us with an extremely informative and well organised tour. The program she formulated was breathtaking and we felt showed us the best highlights we could see in our limited time. The tour was well paced giving us time to enjoy and photograph all the sites. Olga was obliging and reorganised schedules to cater for our every request. Our safety was always paramount and Olga ensured that we were well briefed on every step of the schedule. Thanks for an amazing time.
