I enjoyed the smaller group size. Watching large groups walk around like confused zombies made me realize that I made the right choice with Get Your Guide. The meeting spot was easy to find. We had enough time to buy water & have espresso. The first incline is the hardest, so be prepared for that. When you guide tells you the stones are slippery, believe them!!

Guide was pretty knowledgable. Only part of tour that was difficult was meeting the group. We were a few minutes late to the meeting point and nearly wasted 30 minutes trying to figure out where to meet the guide. It is better to get there in the morning as it does get super busy and crowded around 10/11 AM.
