Jim was an excellent guide and he explained the history of the monasteries with humor, knowledge, and beautiful photos. It was a small group, 15 of us, and he personalized the tour by calling us by name. We visited many stunning vistas and one monastery. I left with a sense of wonder. It was an amazing place with a knowledgeable guide.

We had a great time on this tour! Our tour guide, Dimitri, was very informative and also just a funny guy who we enjoyed being around. We went to lots of great picture spots and saw some things that we would not have found on our own. We also got to visit some monasteries, of course. I would definitely recommend this tour!
