Its weird to see cars and bikes along 2,000 year old roads. But then again, that’s just me. I feel it kind of takes the charm away from this piece of history.
We honestly didn’t know what the big deal about this tour is and sadly our tour guide couldn’t make it clear either. My recommendation, don’t go on this tour.
Amazing tour on Headout! They got everything figured out for us including the pick-up. The guide was amazing and the place itself was exquisite. Got to learn a lot on this tour. Not a must do, but it's definitely out of the box and one of a kind.
