A Recent Review of this tour

Valeria first made an effort to understand our tour objectives, which she then completely and intuitively understood, and gave us exactly what we wanted. She also offered alternatives and ideas of things we could change or add, all done without pressure and at the most appropriate time. She also had the right balance between some historical and interesting facts without it becoming overwhelming and boring. We would fully recommend her.
