As another recent reviewer has said, mine also ended up being a private tour because no-one else had booked for that morning. I wouldn't have chosen a private tour, but actually it was very enjoyable. I also had Philip as my guide. He was great.

The tour was excellent organize and the guide was perfect.
I have only one remark. During the booking my feeling was that I correspond with AI which need more learning.
I repeatedly received repetitive messages that were unrelated to the issues of refinement. It is good for no FAQ questions to have more human control.
I wish you success in your business.

and great commentary from my guide John. Thank you.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

Everything went like clockwork, right from the booking and confirmation stage, and then the actual trip was very good. We were so fortunate as there were only two of us in a car, so were able to stop when we wished and see things that otherwise we may have missed.
The guide was very knowledgeable, knew his history very well, was easy to understand and had great empathy. Our only issue was the pre Christmas traffic. Absolute chaos. The poor guide had to manage this by changing the route and showing us some sights that were not on the itinerary. We were very happy with that and the traffic did not deter us from completing the trip. Well done to our fantastic guide. We did try to book him again, but as a cruise ship was in port were unable to get further bookings.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Our Guide was Philip. He greeted us so warmly and started the tour that became private as there was only two of us. Philip took us to the pier area and even bought us some wondertful local food. The reclining Buddah was spectacular and all the information regarding the culture and religion was shared beautifully. A wonderful tour and excellent guide. so worth doing. Kevin and Liz McHugh
