Kevin was an amazing guide, very personable and with in-depth knowledge of the history of the places we visited, which he shared with passion and humour. What made the 8 hours even more special was Kevin's patience and ingenuity in accommodating some of the changes I wanted to incorporate in our itinerary. I highly recommend Kevin to visitors who are interested in both the popular sights and those off the beaten path.
