A Recent Review of this tour

Alla was a very kind and knowledgeable tour guide. The tour was customizable so she adjusted to our pacing. She made our tour light and fun. She'll suggest stuff to do and visit and it was in our own discretion on what we would choose. We wanted to eat good food and she brought us to a very good restaurant. We also asked her to bring us to antique and souvenir shops. It was a great experience as she was well-informed in antiques and artworks as well. I would highly recommend Alla in your future trips!
