Complex and well organized day

It was really good, well organized and prepared tour (in scheuled as well). Our guide was really nice and gave us a perfect help in each villages. He shared a lot of information about the villages and the surrounding regions and gave us a lot of good tips what we cannot miss from our free time.

Our guide Pune was both knowledgeable and friendly. She took into account the various needs of her passengers and sought to please them. The rain did not dampen our spirits and the day passed so quickly. I learned so much
