Both my daughter and I absolutely loved the tour. Peter was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area. He gave us plenty of time at each spot we stopped at. The 2 1/2 hrs in the museum gave us ample time to see it all. We would do the tour again in a heartbeat ! I would highly recommend it.
