Cenghis is a very excellent tourguide. He’s engaging and very interactive. He knows the history by heart. You can tell that he loves his job because it radiates to the group. He very enthusiastic. Very informative! Highly recommended tour.

The sites were very exciting to see, but best of all was that the guide was extremely knowledgeable with perfect English skills. We were quite a small group consisting of 7 attendees, so we were also able to talk in between

It is the first time I have to say "better book on site!" On site this excursion was 50% cheaper. Unfortunately I could not cancel this anymore. The trip itself was beautiful and can only be recommended!

My tour guide was not only an amazing guide but an amazing person. I was traveling alone and I had so much fun and learned so much. Highly recommend this tour.

It was a brilliant day with a very knowledgeable guide.

The tour was excellently organised with enough time at each site and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The guide was excellent and open to all questions.
