    One of the true highlights of our tour. Watching the artisans create their pieces was wonderful! Had a spectacular tour!

    VERY disappointed. This is supposed to be a tour of the arts of crafts area and we only saw only saw three real crafts-marble papering, a silversmith, and a leather shop. Then we saw a church and a mosaic stone. Where is a bookbinder, the gold-leaf artists, and some of the other crafts. We only saw 3 demos. I thought the whole tour would be arts and crafts-not another church. I wanted to see how things were made no stores. We saw more crafts walking around on our own and going into workshops.
