    Eu e meu marido amamos a viagem! Tem várias paradas para fotos nos melhores lugares e o motorista/guia é sempre animado em nos contar as histórias por trás dos diversos pontos turísticos. O hotel que ficamos também foi muito bom. Fizemos o tour no final de fevereiro, estava bem frio e com neve por quase todo o trajeto, mas nada que atrapalhasse o passeio, pelo contrário, só tornou tudo melhor.
