We were paired with a wonderful professional driver as he referred to himself and a very nice, and informative guide Marcia. Our driver was always able to get us close to the locations and magically appeared when we exited a tour. Marcia was simply terrific. She was quiet and calm compared to many of the guides that we passed. She was focused on us and making sure we saw everything we could in two days, expertly explaining everything. The two lunches that were included with the tour were a treat. Day one we had lunch on the grounds of one of the Palaces we were touring. The food was local and very good. Day two's lunch was a treat. We had lunch in the kitchen of a smaller restaurant that was prepared for us by the owner / chef. He explained all of the courses and provided us with some recipes to try. This was a true experience if Viator can in any way tell me the name of the restaurant I would appreciate it so I can recommend it to others. If you have the time this is well worth it.
