Norta is very knowledgeable and obviously enjoys what she does. She gives a clear explanation of what we are seeing, and also ties it into the larger history. She was paid attention to our interests and customized the tour to what we were most interested in seeing. She chose an excellent driver. Norta is a good communicator. I made an assumption that could have created a last-minute problem. She detected my error promptly and explained what I had to do to correct it. No worries - just a good tour!
