Galia and the driver were charming and interesting. Galia had put together a special tour of the castles in the region for me and it was everything I had hoped for. She even stopped for a quick look at a fourth. She had a wide knowledge of the history and the region. She had even printed out extra material for me to read if I wanted to. It was a fantastic day. I highly recommend Galia as a guide.
