A Recent Review of this tour

Silvana was very adaptable. I only had 2.5 hours and she packed a lot in. I wanted to see both Jewish and general sites and she made good decisions for such a short time that I had. She's extremely knowledgeable, passionate and very nice. I would definitely recommend her.
