Highly recommend the trip! The trip itself was well organised and smooth and the Park was beautiful. Our guide was very helpful and made sure we had all the information needed. We were able to contact her at any time through WhatsApp. Thank you for the lovely time!

Ivan was great. Thank you so much. He picked us up in our hotel in a brand new Mercedes which was a nice surprise. He literally told us that he is here all day long for us and we can do whatever we want and go wherever we want. Wish every tour is like this one.

Beautiful day in nature. Guide was super professional. She made a huge WhatsApp group for everyone and it was a genious idea. Waterfalls were stuning. Olive oil Tasting was probably even better. Food was great and the winery is super cute.

Loved that we were a small group and traveling in a van rather than a bus. Also tour start time was 10 am, much more doable than the early morning options.

Our tour was absolutely amazing! We went with Gray Line (Daniela and Ante) and they were so brilliant, it made the day very memorable
