If you only choose one guided tour, this is the one.

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide was knowlegeable and nothing was too much trouble. The tours are given in small groups which is much more intimate in that the day can be adjusted if needed to accommodate the needs of both young and old. We loved this tour, don’t hesitate, just do it.
