Marieta was flexible with our start times, she gave us a brief history lesson at the beginning and did a great job relating things back throughout history. She is very knowledgeable and easy to be with as a person which made our tours more enjoyable. She recommended wonderful restaurants as well. I would definitely book with her again.
