The best highlight of the trip was our tour guide Dustin. On the top of being knowledgeable and well spoken, Dustin has a good sense of humor, and is a great performer too. This enthusiastic young man is passionate for history and the history of his city. 10 stars.

Our guide, Dustin, was excellent (should have been a drama major), but when I clicked on the address in the email reminder it took us to a wrong location and the phone number was also wrong (which we needed because we were late from going to the wrong location). Luckily Dustin called us and we set up a meet-up point. Overall the tour was good, and Dustin was great. This is best as a genera history and overview, but it doesn’t get into a lot of the less known historical places or architecture.
