We have limited time here and I planned way ahead to do the walk, she notified us half an hour before it’s schedule. It’s very disappointed

Eli is the most knowledgeable, polite and thoughtful guide. He is going beyond and really really cares about everyone in the group.

Eli changed the timing of the tour and asked a confirmation both by website and message. Nevertheless: - he never replied to that messages (neither in website nor in whatsapp). - never replied to the calls (neither normal and neither in whatsapp). - not attended his own appointment.

Eli is very knowledgeable and he delivers facts with a big smile and funny story. You do not feel like you have been walking for 2-3 hours. I would definitely recommend him!
