Very good!

Just the two of us made it even more enjoyable. Mr. Phuc (Lee?) was excellent, knowledgeable, interesting, always ready to answer questions, and moved at a nice pace. A lovely lunch was provided. (Like to mention Jenny who stood in at the last minute for the airport pick up, was superbly helpful and amusing).
