Our guide was fabulous and very knowledgeable. We saw so much in just one day but we didn't feel rushed at any of the sites.

It was an expensive way to see the sights, but we felt it was worth it. We had enough time at the different sights to take it in. Our guide was very knowledgable but a bit distant in her presentation.
