"We were 4 adults and a 13 year old, it was the most amazing 5 hour tour. The young guide was so knowlegeable, approachable soo friendly. We were treated so well. When we compared our tour with those on our ship that took a huge group tour, we were so glad we made this decision. As they are a registered Tour group, immigration has your name on their list, and everything was easy. No following huge crowds of people. We had such wonderful personal service that cost less than the crowded tours from the Ship. Highly recommended."
