Had a fantastic 1/2 spent with Hugo just myself and my sister as we did the am trip - Hugo is a bundle of knowledge re the products grown thought the country and we sampled fresh pomegranate /dried figs from his grandmother smelt all kinds of wild herbs stopped a great place for coffee amazing coffee and great custard pie we saw pretty villages an expanse of water used like a local pool beautiful in the summer. Learnt about property prices what can be grown in the clay type soil ( how this is used to make roof tiles). Then we went up to the highest point and had a beautiful panoramic view and shot some wonderful photos. Then back to reality and down the mountain which was just like a roller coaster but fun and Hugo was great throughout. Many thanks to Hugo and Getyourguide for this great experience and a chance to learn more about our holiday destination - highly recommended
