In relation to the active time with sightseeing, the time we spent on the bus was very long. In addition, the bus was very narrow, with no legroom. That may work for short journeys, but since we really spent hours on the bus, it was an imposition

The tour was good. However we had an inexperienced guide who tried her best to speak in English. There were several English speaking people on the tour. All of us lost a lot due to this.
