This tour was most fun and interesting. The market has amazing items, but many are very expensive. Our guide Marie was so nice, natural, and a great host. My only comment was that outside the Market the area was sketchy and we felt somewhat unsafe, especially in the Metro station, where aggressive young males were trying to sell tickets. We walked down to the next station which was fine. Watch your pockets.

Our guide was a delight and very knowledgeable. Very much enjoyed our trip through both the old markets and the newer, more trendy. Great characters and much fun!
