A wonderful first tour. We got a marvelous behind the scenes look at gold smithing plus entry into the private museum of the family. I am looking forward to more tours with these two guides.

I learned lots of new things but it was a bit fragmented - probably because it was their first tour. In regards to camera work - a little more focus on the items being discussed vs. the people talking would give us the opportunity to take better postcards. Perhaps watch a few of the seasoned guides like Adam in Budapest, Aaron & Patrick in New York, Hieu in Vietnam to see how smooth they are with the camera. Thank you.
