Tour was fantastic. Anja was exceptional. So personable, knowledgeable, and just plain fun to have on the tour. We spent 2 weeks in Italy and the some of the most fun was the time we spent with Anja. The city was interesting, the local shops were and Anja was able to introduce it to us all. She clearly knows the history, the businesses, and the people well. She made the experience really outstanding.
