    Emmanuel was outstanding. He was attentive and very informational. He is an excellent driver thru small spaces! He provided a lot of the history of the area and pointed out numerous sites and even gave us recommendations for other sites and restaurants he would recommend. He had a good sense of humor and was very sensitive to our needs. Excellent tour and would highly recommend
