Silvia is an excellent guide. She shows you where the locals get the best food. Best pain au chocolat I've ever had. She knows the shop owners and people on the streets. It was enjoyable seeing her interact with her and they would interact with us as well. Worth the experience. I wish I had gone on this tour at the beginning of my trip because it was very close to were I was staying and I would have enjoyed going back to this area.
