This private tour is expensive but I found it worthwhile. Priscilla was my guide who shared loads of valuable information with perfect delivery and pace. A lot to take in and a very privileged experience.

Hi Tony, The $278 was the total cost of the tour for two, including entry tickets. We had two tours with Agnes, both were absolutely top-notched. Worth every penny! Have fun!
