Ester was a welcoming and friendly guide who was very positive and informative. I was the only person, which some guides would struggle with, but Ester was great. I would recommend the tour with her, giving me some food and drink tips as well as the history. Thank you for the tour.

Ester is a really fun interesting and knowledgeable local guide. She showed us lots of little places and details that we would never have otherwise found. In between she kept the group engaged with quiz like questions, humour and her warm personality. You got the impression that she was enjoying it as much as we were. Though I'd wondered if 2 and a half hours might be too long, the time passes quickly. I'd highly recommend a tour with her.
