Esperienza suggestiva e fuori dal comune , sono proprio contenta di averla fatta! Sono d’accordo anche i miei amici( eravamo un gruppo di 7 persone). Il nostro autista ( si chiama Dalek) è stato gentilissimo ed esaustivo nel darci tante spiegazioni circa i vari posti visitati, siamo stati proprio fortunati!

Impressive, Impressive, Impressive

Loved the fact that we could actually tour his private residence where he grew up and the church he attended as a boy.
