A Recent Review of this tour

I am having trouble finding words that describe how great Manuela is at her job. This was the only tour in my life that I honestly felt I paid too little for. Manuela was knowledgeable, patient, and prepared to make this an unforgettable experience for our family. She was able to entertain both our two toddlers and us with the aid of a tablet and several books, which brought her words to life. Because of that, this tour was the highlight of our trip and I would recommend Manuela to anyone!
