First things first, we would like to thank our guide, Vera, for this amazing experience! She is very smart, funny and kind person and we were lucky to have here by our side during this trip, 10/10 ❤️ However, if we could rate this tour 4,5 stars, we would just because the agenda. The thing is thermal bathtubs: the location we went to on the first day was magnificent, but the second day..we didn't enjoy it that much. We would 100% recommend to take this tour, however we suggest to switching east and west part in order to not lose this sparkle, you know

I rated it a One star because the driver was late this morning and I thought it was scam.It was an error in c9lommunicati9n between the booking agent and Get Your Guide's driver. My driver, Manuel, was great, he explained the situation to his supervisor and me and our group did the tour. It was excellent. Manuel was excellent and I would recommend this company
