Well, I was pleasantly surprised. We turned up and we were, luckily, the only couple. The Guide Irena was very, very nice and fun to walk around with. It was a most enjoyable evening tour. The only drawback for me was I was worn out by the time we were finished. I guess that what is like when you reach 74yrs. I sure needed my glass of beer after that. Thanks Irena.

This was a very interesting tour and the tour guide was very good, however you need to be in reasonable physical condition to do it -- lots of walking uphill but very much worth it!
