A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent. Very proud of his city and extremely knowledgeable on national historical periods as well as current political trends. His English is nearly flawless. A most enjoyable tour. One tip: have him meet you at your hotel; we wasted time trying to find his suggested meeting point in the city.
