    It was a great tour with a nice and careful tour guide. We have seen a lot in the short time. The tour was perfect organized. The only thing I would change would be the first hostel we stayed. The rest of the accommodations where fine or very nice. I really appreciated the group spirit and all the stops at the petrol stations or at a shop on our way we made. They where looking good after us and we had a great time.
