Daria was a great Tour Director. She is young, but yet very knowledgeable. Very good at explaining things. She also had visual aids so everyone could understand. I saw a lot of things on my bucket list and just two hours. 😍 Thanks, Daria!!

This is a great introduction. I felt pressured into making the “donation”. I don’t think it’s appropriated if it is marketed as free, then it should be free.
