A Recent Review of this tour

Meri was a delight - she knows the city history, and made it come alive for us as we walked about. It was raining buckets for part of our tour - and she had even brought extra umbrellas for us! Our tour ended with a glass of juice, and an opportunity to review a map of the entire island. We now have a good idea on how we want to spend our remaining time here. Meri brought us out to the airport so we could rent a car. Clearly service above and beyond!
