Marian took us on an invigorating hike with gorgeous views that photos do not do justice! It was just us two, and we are avid hikers, so he was able to take us on a longer hike as per our request. It was physically demanding but not too difficult or dangerous, and every few minutes the views just got more breath-taking. After 3 hours in the mountains, we descended into a quaint village in the valley, passing grazing cattle & sheep and smelling bonfires in the distance. We felt so refreshed and alive. We ate lunch at a guest house, and he was able to arrange our family-style lunch to be all vegetarian, and it was very hearty and filling! To finish, we had a long but easy walk back along country roads, and Marian told us about how his tours are designed to be eco-friendly and give back to the local villages, which we definitely appreciate. Afterwards, we were pretty tired but so grateful we had booked this tour. It exceeded our expectations and was the best day of our trip by far.
