A Recent Review of this tour

Natalia has given us with much expertise, enthusiasm and her very sympathetic way to convey information / background knowledge a very good fundament to discover this fantastic city. This city tour ( the best we ever have make in our long life ) is very helpful and a must do for every tourist who want to see and learn more, than only the typical standard tours without high quality and competence. Thank you very much, Natalia, for an unforgettable day.
