Our tour guide was David. He's very professional, always answering our questions, and making sure to stop in the shadow. However, I miss more fun, interaction and enthuasiasm during the tour. I also believe than less information but deeper explanations would have been better. I don't think the break at the restaurant was really needed. The stop at the Nougat shop, however, was very nice and the visit of the market too! Thank you!
