The trip was a very pleasant experience. Adam took us from the place we were staying, and left us there too at the end. We left at about 7 am so the road was pretty much empty and the trip there was fast. During the walk through the park Adam told us some fun facts and stories about the place, and we kind of tasted its history. The park in itself is a nice view, so definitely recommend going there!

Really interesting, with a very helpful and knowledgeable guide! With thanks to a local expert with fluent English, we got to apprecaite so much more than if we were self guided!
