We found Jean Claude very polite and obliging, and his local knowledge was superb and he really did care for us. For example one night we wanted to have an extra look around and walk through the alleyways near our accommodation. JC was very caring and insisted he stay with us and we walk there together - our safety was his top priority. Our driver was also very polite and friendly. I would absolutely, use Tours by Locals and specifically JC again if we had the opportunity.
