Tour could have more things to do at both cities

Guide was ok, rather quiet. Left us at the cities for us to explore on our own, a lot of down time and things to figure out on our own. Would have preferred someone that brought us around and conduct a tour instead of "transportation to the sites". Beautiful spots by the way.
