Christina hat alle Aspekte der Stadt angesprochen: Geschichte, Gegenwart, Gebäude, Personen, Flora, Religion etc., und das auf einer Route, auch abseits der Haupt-Sehenswürdigkeiten, die wir alleine nie entdeckt hätten. Alle Nachfragen wurden kompetent beantwortet. Es war eine wunderbare Tour mit einer sehr netten Guide. Und dazu noch auf deutsch. Einfach perfekt für uns. Danke Christina!
