Your guide will know some Resistance members thanks to the research done and the lectures given with them when they come and share their experience. This enables you to have a first-hand account of what happened in the capital of the Resistance.
At your convenience, this two-hour tour can include a visit to a workshop where clothes were clandestinely woven for Resistance members on traditional silk looms. Other places are arms caches and meeting points where we will talk about aliases, code names and other secret resources.
