A Recent Review of this tour

Dina met us at the cruise ship pier and got to know about us as we walked into the city. She has a BFA and a Greek with a love of this city and its culture. We learned about different aspects of the city structure and architecture. She was open to all our questions, matter-of-fact, and yet humorous and passionate when sharing on certain topics, like food! She was very liberal and respectful of the women in the red light district, and generous with her time which was also very professional. Donna
