A Recent Review of this tour

This guide was absolutely amazing, wonderful, brilliant and charming. Her range of knowledge of art, history, music, science, and cultures was ' off the charts'. This may be the first time that vast knowledge of all subjects that my husband stores may have met his equal. Nikolett responded immediately to any and all requests. And recommended a wonderful restaurant, too. Susan
