    Overpriced

    While the trip was fun and Tomas was an excellent guide, I did find (in comparison to other tours all over the world) was way overpriced. Lunch was a cheap one euro sandwich with a bottle of water. Seriously?

    A beautiful city.

    The city is very beautiful. The worst, the works on the road, which made the trip lengthen.
