Our guide did an excellent job of presenting the site in a succinct and interesting way. The guide was engaging, humorous, passionate, and very attentive in engaging our family. We learned anecdotes that brought the site to life, and our guide also spoke of some of the preservation challenges that face the excavation today. I highly recommend this company and tour.
