within minutes after meeting Anna, we knew this tour would be magical. And it was. Smart, friendly, professional, so easy to be with, Anna made our tour one of our best. Her choices as to what we should see were spot on. To tell you the truth, in the short time we spent together, we felt we were saying good bye to a friend. Thank you Anna, we miss you already!
