Excellent even in winter!
Shizuka_M, July 2019
In two days, this tour covers a lot more than you can cover on your own. Our tour guide, Daniel was very thoughtful about everybody’s needs, flexible, conscientious & funny. The best of all, he was a great story teller: I learned way more than I expected from a commercial tour!
Response from Host, July 2019
