Such an amazing day! Luciano was absolutely wonderful! My mom (79) was with us and he made sure she was doing well the entire time. He even took extra time with us to make sure we saw everything as well as giving us recommendations for the rest of our time here. Highly recommend this tour and Luciano!

Pick up very punctually, relaxed drive with interesting travel tips from Michael, great view on the mountain. The ice cave is fascinating and well worth seeing.
