A Recent Review of this tour

Elena was a great guide. My family and I did a three day tour with her. She was super knowledgeable, time efficient, and applied logical sequencing to the order of the site visits. She also picked great lunch locations, souvenir shops, and helped with a special dinner reservation. Highly recommend.
