    I walked from the touristoffice alone. Really hard walk in the heat. The guides at the touristoffice insist to guide you, but it is allowed to do it yourself. You don't need a guide to find the way.

    Thanks Salsafan.

    May I ask you a few more questions?

    Can you venture a guess regarding my idea to get a guide from a hotel resource once I arrive? I really want a guide/travel companion to interpret and, most importantly, to deflect street vendors and gringo price gouging. I accept that tourists are "hard currency" and I don't mind a few extra shekels. But if a taxi ride is 10 dollars I don't want to pay 40. I would like to take taptap where practical. From your postings back and forth to milot sounds like the perfect experience. Still, I would rather have a companion.

    Did you see the horses? Did you walk from Sans Souci or did you walk from a nearer entrance? Is the "tourist office" visible from a zoomed in google map? Cuz if it's what I think it is it's about half way up.

    Thanks.

    How old were you when you did it?

    I don't know how easy it is to find a spanish speaking trustworthy companion in CH, the people in the Hotel were friendly and helpful. Apart from the guides near Citadelle the people in CH and nearby didn't bother me at all. I walked from the Tourist Office of the Citadelle (half way between Sans Souci and Citadelle), you can see it in Google-Satellitview if you zoom enough.
    My age, I was not a Boy anymore but good in shape.
