We were the only ones signed up, so we were fortunate to have a very personalized tour. Maya was very friendly and welcoming, and we enjoyed learning about the history of the city, life during communism, and how it compares to life today.

Celebrity will sell you round trip tickets for their shuttle to the Greeting to the Sun monument (the start point) for $15 per person. Probably cheaper if you can share a cab .
