Our guide, Veronika, is very knowledgeable. She was excellent in pointing out many unique items to us both physically and with her words. She spoke loudly and clearly for all of us to hear her, 10 total and I’m deaf. She took a lot of pride in her job and country, answering questions for us all. Highly recommend a tour with her.
