The tour guide was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and shared lots of great information. He was very open to answering questions. The group was small, which was very nice. If we had had the 10-12 people that were supposed to have been on the tour, I think that would have been too many.

We bought tickets 7 months ago, and the wait was worth it. It was very informative, and it certainly gave me a new respect for the 6 line! The tour was informative and really easy to follow. Gabi was a great tour guide! I will definitely be on the lookout for her other tours.
