Excellent guide around the Jewish quarters, learning many many interesting facts. We then had an hour in the factory. I absolutely love riding in the tuk tuk. Such an excellent way to explore the city.

Even in the rain it was great! My guide was soo patient & caring as at first I was nervous & didn’t think I’d manage. Not even half way through I had it! These people are very accommodating, caring.

This tour was really interesting, we were accompanied by the talented and very nice Paolina, whom we thank again, we highly recommend this tour, Erica and Luca
