Good, but some sound issues which were definitely Leila's end, as they happened every time she flipped the phone - perhaps the mic not plugged in properly, or something like that? The back streets of Yazd are made up of covered walkways to offer shelter from the desert heat - which was interesting, but by the same token you cannot see terribly much when inside. I only noticed by chance that Leila was offering what she called "Wow!" photo opportunities AFTER the official end of the tour. I do very much appreciate guides staying online afterwards to answer any questions. If a tour has accidentally overrun, I also prefer the guide to complete it, rather than exit without finishing. BUT, please don't add extra, unplanned items after the end! If it's such a wow, please include it in the main tour, or in another one - I'd already moved onto another activity, leaving the tab still open in the background, when I heard Leila talking about the "Wow!" photo, and quickly switched back to see stunning views of the mosque, which had not been included in the main tour. I'm sure a lot of people will have missed this - as I almost did myself - because they will have assumed the good bits were finished.
