Fantastic driver. Obviously knows a great deal about the history. Takes photos for you so that both of you can be in the picture. Thanks Viator best tour ever!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2013

We were the only 2 people on the tour so we had more personalised service than we have ever had before. The bus driver very kindly let us stop at a fruit stand and art gallery because we had so much time available.
