It was a very great and dedicated tour with many wonderful impressions of the mountains. However, you shouldn't be completely unfit. Highly Recommended!

Fascinating, great guide (former flight attendant, outstanding stories), fun (and very small) group, new minibus, for really an unbelievable price.

Very interesting, cool and well organized trip. The guide was very interesting and fun. Worth it!

A bit quick but a great experience with a listening guide!
