We really enjoyed our excursion with Robert! We had a lovely time cycling round Poti, a delicious lunch and some kayaking independently. Robert was a lovely chilled out guy! Definitely recommend.

Georgi è stato un’ottimo autista e una buona guida. Sempre prodigo di spiegazioni e sempre con il sorriso.
