The tour guide was very very friendly, he knew his way around. He gave us plenty of time to explore and gave us tips to get better photos! He also answered all of our questions and made good chat, we had an amazing evening!

The guide is really cool, excellent in driving you around and a really nice guy. Opposite to many other tours guides, he leaves you plenty of freedom and time in enjoying the sights
