OMG! Soooo much fun. Tommy and Gita were awesome guides. They took us on the wildest and craziest ride that will forever be talked about with our friends. The tiny alley ways and stops at historical places was great. We got to see parts of the city that no one else will see on a routine tour. Highly recommend this trip!! Even our teenage son had a blast! Ten stars!!! We would love to get the photos that Gita took! Please email them

Yuut was an outstanding tour guide. He made it so easy to get around and was so informative at each of our stops. You can tell he loves what he does. Other tourists noticed his expertise and would listen to him talk and answer questions. He was gracious with others while remaining focused on me. I would book with Yuut again for sure!
