I have come to expect a high level of engagement and knowledge from Guruwalk guides. Mario did not disappoint. The walk was not for anyone who does not do hills (!) but the panoramic viewpoints which formed part of the tour certainly gave a clearer understanding of both the ancient and more recent history of this city
