on 8th December we were only 3 ppl taking the tour and it was so great, almost like a private one. Our guide was really funny and talkative and he knew every single detail we asked him. He was also explaining things through out the way. Very nice guy.

I took the trip with my godson (21 years old) from Ireland. We had a lot of fun on this ride. I also really enjoyed the trip as a tourist in my own country.

We really had a great time. Great scenery and ofcourse great tour guide/driver. We really enjoyed the trip.

In my opinion, it would be nice to have a little more free time in the city

Wonderful guide. Informative. Meal was good. Small group. Loved it.
