    It was a nice tour. Worth the price I’d say. We have co-tourists who were late to return to bus on time due to confusion as to the meeting place. So listen to your tour guide.

    I had done this trip 4 years ago, and had very fond memories. The trip we took on Monday, October 14, 2019 was equally as amazing. Everything was as expected, and the beautiful weather was a bonus. Our guide, Dario Del Monica, was very articulate, and full of information.
