This was very informative and so much fun. Our tour guide Tia made it the best I would recommend this tour to anyone, and it was a great value.

I had flagged this review because it simply is not our tour but a competitor. We do not typically go to the locations described. Trip Advisor should have moved this to the appropriate company who got the review.

The girl giving the tour was very knowledgeable and excellent story teller. Very professional I never knew about the executioner wall at the fort. I loved at the end where we could use the equipment and see all the orbs on the moni tors
