The trip was more than we could have dreamed of. The drive up the mountains was comfortable and the scenery was amazing. Our guide James had all the knowledge required to inform us about the history of each location and could answer any questions we had. We were in awe of the vistas. The length of the trip was very good value for money. The teenagers enjoyed it. I would advise people to charge their phones and cameras as there is so much to capture. I will be recommending this trip to my family and friends.

We had a tour / walking tour through the mountains. The guides both had great background knowledge, were in a great mood and showed us the most beautiful places. It was really fun and you could express your own wishes. I would definitely book this tour again. Price-performance ratio is on point here.

Great excursion with lovely little historic villages. Our guide was really able to tell a lot about the story, which was very interesting. The lake is not that spectacular, however, as it is "only" a reservoir and not one in which you can swim.

Nice day trip and good guide who knows a lot about the history of the places. Plenty of stops and time to visit the villages.

Wonderful scenery and knowledgeable guide. Highlight of the week.
