No professional enough to charge such price

What was offered is actually just visit to the museums without in-depth explanations. FITO museum has their own guides, so it’s good. History museum is ok. War museum - English guides will not do much explanation as it is sensitive. Fine art museum is lacking. But the cafe at the end of the tour is excellent. Very knowledgeable shopkeepers who know their tea and coffee.
