Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. We were not aware that he could not accompany us into the various sites due to licensing regulations and this was bit of a disappointment though he g do I’d explain to us beforehand the key highlights and things we should look for. Overall this was an incredibly rich day of antiquities viewing and I would highly recommend it for ardent lovers of ancient history. It is a very full day with so much to see. Those with only a passing “touristic desire to see the beauty of the ancient world might not find it as interesting or satisfying. On a logistical note our guide was terrifically accommodating and made the trip entirely to our liking once he gushed our interest and knowledge level.
