guides were well informed and professional...warm and invited questions. I liked the personal touch of visiting a residence. We were greeted on time. I wished the recipes had been printed up for our personal collection.

Very interesting and informative walk. Our guide was lovely and her stories fascinating. A perfect way to discover the area around the temple. Early morning is perfect time to walk these streets.
