We didn't want a fully guided tour, just transport and light information and this booking fulfilled that brief. It was quick and easy to book online although I did have to download the app as well. The driver, Joshua, turned up on time, spoke good English and gave us a safe drive to all the places we wanted to visit, gave a bit of advice about each place and then dropped us off back at the hotel.

Everything is very clear and efficient, I just enjoyed my impressions, not being distracted by organizational issues. The whole day passed in one breath, the road was not tiring, they gave out water and wet wipes, it was time to have lunch. We looked at everything according to the program and even more, for which thanks again to a caring guide. There were very pleasant impressions of the tour.
