Worth Every Penny and then some.
First off the communication with Sorhay was incredible. E-mails, requests, concerns, etc, were responded to almost immeditely. Then for the tour- what makes this tour different is that it is what you want it to be. Sure, you see the main things like the canal and the old town and the causeway, but the dots that connect them, it is up to you. She will ask you ok, what do you want to do and there were multiple times throughout the tour where it was like ok, how about we all do this instead or oh, i got an idea you will like, how about we go here. For our tour, we ended up on the North Corridor highway to check out the bha'i temple on the north side of town. Totally not a tourist area/destination.
Sorhay's energy, passion, and expertise make this tour even more special. First off, like the description says, at no point were we rushed through everything, and like previously written. We did things that were so out of the way and out of the tourist zone, because that is how the tour went. It wasn't a general tour of- here are the sites, get your pictures, good enough. It was a- ok, here is the pulse of the city. At this place, at this moment in time, this is what you were doing. Our experience will be 1000 different than what yours will be, and that what separates this tour from all the other ones. That is why it is worth every penny and then some.
