A Recent Review of this tour

Sara was waiting for our party of 3 at the agreed on location. I appreciated that she had print outs of articles on the temples and could explain some questions I had about roof construction with illustrations that helped me visualize how the roofs were achieved. Two friends, who have backgrounds in horticulture, were with me and appreciated Sara's knowledge in the temple area. We went on to the fabulous Garden of Kolymbetra with Sara. Sara was informed and patient with a multitude of questions.
