Our experience was amazing and worth every penny. The tour offers plenty of stops to make it worth your money, but we also had enough time at each stop for ample information and fine for questions. Our guide Celine was impeccable, very passionate; she made the information very fluid and appropriately humorous. For other travelers I simply recommend check the weather to see if you should wear layers and wear tennis shoes!
