We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Lawren did an awesome job with the arrangements and answering questions.

People should be aware that there is a fair amount of walking involved on stone, brick, and tile sidewalks that can be uneven. Also there are a number of inclines as part of the walking.

Everything was terrific. Would do this again. G
