This trip was 4.5 hours well spent. Lots of panorama views and Kodak moments plus a bit of off road adventure. Our guide was good and talked non stop, but unfortunately sitting in the back of an open jeep, I wasn't able to hear much of his commentary. The jeep was the only thing that let this tour down. It spewed black exhaust fumes the whole trip. You could see the fumes in the car headlights as we passed through the tunnels. The smell from the exhaust was quite overpowering after a while. Also travelling back on the highway at 100kph in an open top jeep was no fun either. The laughable thing was the jeep had a 'eco-friendly' sticker inside. It was the exact opposite.

Very nice experience, very nice vew from the peak. Our guide is great too, he took care us well. We took the tour during the off season time in Jan so it turned out only 2 of us in the tour, same as a private tour. The weather was not the best with a lot of rain and wind in the mountain area but not all the time, you can experience different seasons in the same day which was fun too. Rain then sunshine and rain then sunshine again and the rainbows followed us all the way. We knew the weather was not the best when we booked but still decided to go for it, so don’t let the weather to stop you.

We booked a second tour with True Spirit as we enjoyed the first so much. This was a half day tour with Diogo who was also friendly, informative and fun. We were lucky to have great weather the whole morning, getting to see incredible views along our journey and at the main sights. The off roading was fantastic and with great views and lots of nature and wildlife to be seen. Love how ethical this company is too, with Diogo picking up any rubbish he saw on the way
