We had an excellent tour guide who was always on top of things. Everything ran so seemingly effortlessly, but I know he did a lot behind the scenes to be sure this was the case. The timing of all of our site visits always felt spot on in that we seemed to avoid the more crowded times and could more intimately enjoy all of our experiences

Susan

Our guide was extraordinary. I sent a separate message about how she helped us retrieve our phone from the airport. Her command of history, religious significance, and linguistics made for a very rich and interesting experience. The quality of her work was what wowed us during our trip

Martha

Our tour guide was amazing. The insights he added made every site a WOW factor.
