Nice and competent guide. However, there were no elements of music on the route, which we were hoping for ..... The lawns did not play for us. Someone could check it by offering such a trip

Anna our tour guide was so lovely and informative. It was just me and my bf which made the tour personal and we both very much enjoyed it. She was passionate about what she does and very clever lady - thank you.
