A Recent Review of this guide

Shanoo's english is excellent and we highly recommend him as your guide. He has very good knowledge and knows the best places to stand to see the best views. He is very calm and no pressure selling. He also has a lot of knowledge about the different monuments that maybe you wouldn't get out of a travel book. An excellent day. Thank you Shanoo.
