The guide was extremely helpful and enlightening! The tour was absolutely value of money. The intermediate stops could have a little bit shorter duration so as to have more time for the main stops. But the overall experience was great! Totally recommended!

We had a wonderful excursion, thank you. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it so interesting. We also found her extremely caring and sensitive to our needs. Thank you for a lovely day. Pam and Clare.

We had a really interesting and fulfilling experience which was made possible by our private tour guide and driver Joe who made it truly educating and special. Definitely worth doing.

En väldigt kunnig och trevlig guide, precis som på andra orter. Turen hade bra upplägg och lagom långa uppehåll på de olika platserna
