Her language skills are superb, and she speaks multiple languages fluently. She customised the tour to suit our interests and schedule, and got us access to places not usually open to the public. She even helped us sort out COVID tests at the end of the tour as we were flying out other that day. We can’t imagine having gone on the tour with anyone else as our guide. I would highly recommend both Carla, and this tour."..."
