A Recent Review of this tour

Elena was excellent. We have 2 children (8 & 5 yearsold) and she was very patient and sweet with them. She tried to make it fun for them too. She was flexible with the itinerary. She was extremely knowledgeable and mixed history and culture in her tour. Highly recommend!
