We had a wonderful tour with Humi! This is actually our second time on this tour. We enjoyed the first one so much that when our son was able to join us we choose to book again. She is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. We learned a lot!

Humi was an excellent guide providing comprehensive information about the site’s history. She was thoughtful and attentive with the group’s needs as well, I totally recommend this experience!

Glad we decided to do a tour versus exploring on our own as we got a deeper understanding and appreciation for what we were looking at.

We had an excellent tour! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She brought the past to life. Highly recommend!
