The tour was amazingly informative, and the guide, Babel. He was not only thorough but answered every question, even some that had little to do with area. My wife and I are both some what handicapped and he was very patient with us and took his time to make sure we were as comfortable as possible. A very good guide. Deserving of the tip we gave him and much more. By far one of the best tour guide we’ve ever had!!!
