Stefania was just excellent guide!!! She was not tiring at all, she insisted on basic information and if you wanted to explain more, she was just very pleased to give more details. She was very friendly and funny as well. Although this experience lasts 3 hours, it is very relaxing, not tiring at all. Highly recommend!
