based on 9 reviews

It is an excellent option, for those who want to save time, to visit each place on their own. Special mention to Maurizi, that man is a wonder of a good person. A very good grandfather who with all the patience develops the walk.

Very complete, good attention, very friendly both the Maurizi guide and the Gleison driver. I recommend them.
