Martha was very knowledgeable, had fun stories to tell, and was able to answer all of our questions, adapting the tour to fit our interests. And after a full afternoon, the lemonade in a cool courtyard was a lovely finishing touch!

Martha was very animated and informative. She made us feel welcome and i could tell she enjoyed sharing her knowledge of her hometown with us. Well worth the time and money.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was very well paced. I was under the impression that one of the sisters would be the guide. That was not the case. That fact leads me to the rating.
