El tour fue excelente. También el personal fue muy amable. Yo por error escogí el día del tour erróneo y llegué pensando que era el día que tenía en mente y ellos hicieron lo imposible para que yo pudiera hacer el tour y no perdiera el dinero. Gracias a esto pasé uno de mis mejores cumpleaños.

Good way to get to know the four towns in one day. Fast and comfortable bus trip with very good explanations by our guide Facundo. That day it rained and it was a bit uncomfortable, especially in the last town. But thanks to the Tour we seized the day. There was also the option of eating in a typical restaurant and although we hadn't contracted it because it didn't give us the option when making the reservation, we could take it through the guide for €14 per person. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended excursion. The sites are spectacular. The guide, Tirso, very competent. The explanations were very complete, interesting and not at all heavy. You learn a lot. It is very well organized. The only thing missing is having a little more free time at the stops because, as the sites are so special, you can enjoy them for longer.
