Really good tour. It's nice to get a little active. The guide was very approachable and friendly. Food was quite good too, included veggie options. When it's not in season you see mud rather than the green fields on the pics but honestly it's still very worth it!

I paid extra for a small group tour (max 9 people) but when we showed up, it was a giant group of at least 20 people. The tour was chaotic in some parts as we were taken on a tour group route that had many other large groups visiting the same rest stop and buffet restaurant. The lines were crazy for food at the rest stop and lunch place with no order at all.

Potrebbe essere meglio se la guida che accompagna raccontasse anche qualcosa e non fosse solo accompagnatore.
