Very well organized, we were a group of 4 friends and the guide Anna who spoke Spanish was a charm with all of us. He was in charge of explaining all the details to us throughout the excursion, which for the price it has, the number of hours you spend sightseeing is crazy. Our best wishes to Anna and her companions! From Pamplona we hope you have a good time in Andalucia!!!!

Great trip! Lake Como is beautiful. We missed some time visiting Varenne due to traffic, but that time was made up for in Bellagio and Como. Not to miss ! The guide is at the top!
