    Well we had a small tour....it was just my friend and I with an art history major who was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She took us in her car and we really enjoyed the private tour. She showed us an Amber Museum that had such a variety of art work I was overwhelmed by the beauty and skill it took to make the items. She explained everything really well and answered all of our questions. We were able to go on our own pace and saw everything. She directed us to a nice shop with quality merchandise post tour. Then dropped us off at a special location so we could take a canal tour instead of back to the hotel which saved us a cab ride. Excellent choice.
