The places we saw were breathtaking. A real wow factor. Sooo worth going on this trip. The areas were hilly, so a lot of unpaved ups and downs to walk. Be prepared with hiking shoes, and swimming trunks and expect your trousers to get dusty at the least.

The tour is really very worth it,we were able to explore the area in each place we go to,the views are so breathtaking which leaves us in awe...This tour is realky a must have,we really had fun...

Paul is excellent guide. Tells interesting stories and really loos after you when you are on-board. website should be clearer in respect of starting point - postcode does not correspond with it.

Great tour and definitely worth the money. The guide was incredible, and helpful. Only critique is that there is a bit of walking throughout the tour, so wear comfortable walking shoes.

Amazing day, so beautiful landscapes , our tour guide John was very friendly and a great guide . I highly recommend the tour !!
