The tour in total was really nice. We had fun with the bicycle tour with wonderful view in the countryside. Also the lunch was very good and offered in the perfect location, we loved the swimming pool there. The view and scenery on the boat trip was stunning! Only thing that we didn’t like was the way people on the boat forced us to buy something for a price weigh to high. If we didn’t want they kept pushing all boat trip.

Very well organized and interesting tour! Our tour guide Rose did a very good job and traveled with us in a small group of 6 people. The hiking part of 500 steps was amazing! Would do the same tour again :) very good restaurant.

Best tour ever
