  • Excellent. The Jianya guide is suitable for a group of interested adults. Top quality. We strongly recommend a bus stop in the area.

  • I don't know what's more crazy... The one who has not yet made a film about this bizarre heist of the Naaman dealer's Watch and madness collection... Or the scramble of the collector Sir David to ensure a rare inspiring collection and a technological and artistic value that cannot be placed in a price tag... Except maybe for a clock that was not worn by Marie Antoinette, valued at 25 million euros, or the lack of contact of the presentation of this collection at the Museum of Islam (except for the context that the daughter of the Treasury has been the museum – there is nothing to do with Muslim art) without a doubt the famous Parisian genius Abraham Louis Barga, steals the performance in the impossible ability Light in the perception of time and the invention of the active mechanisms that have increased all the limits of the period, simply the whole of perfection! The genius who has set standards of measure and standard that cannot be concluded since the day! Breathtaking, spectacular and amazingly precise, jaw-breathing! Challenge me to debrief to read and collect every piece of information and make the story movie film...
