Overall, the tour was as expected and more. Some of the places visited were beautiful and sometimes breathtaking. Our guide was quite friendly and considerate, in short she was great. She had so much different infomation including historical with a twist of folklore tales that made the 5 days feel very short. I would recommend this tour!

The trip is good. Driver Michael is excellant. One point I need to point out Do not choose the Hotel option. I choose and pay for the Hotel optionfor 4 nights, but Viator give me a Bed and Breakfast Guest House in the first 2 nights. Viator did not give an answer to my complaint.

The tour was everything we'd hoped for. Our guide, Ross, was the best. He was full of all sorts of information - historical, environmental - whatever we wanted to know, he had the answers. And all told in an entertaining way. Ross also was very flexible and planned our itinerary to go with the weather conditions. Saw amazing scenery!!
