Loved the small group with an excellent guide!
Julianne_P, May 2023
Our guide Lello was very knowledgeable and fun. We were a smaller group of 10 which made it easier for us to move as a group and a more efficient way to see everything. We saw a lot in just a few hours. But we were allowed to continue to explore on our own. We did a little exploring and then opted for Gelato! Lastly, I must mention the communication from the guide was very clear due to a radio system that amplified to us with a small ear piece. Not distracting...and so easy!
A perfect tour & tour guide!
