OMG! Soooo much fun. Tommy and Gita were awesome guides. They took us on the wildest and craziest ride that will forever be talked about with our friends. The tiny alley ways and stops at historical places was great. We got to see parts of the city that no one else will see on a routine tour. Highly recommend this trip!! Even our teenage son had a blast! Ten stars!!! We would love to get the photos that Gita took! Please email them
