Great service and a comfortable ride in a van with Mario. We chose this for the small group size and it didn’t disappoint. Mario tried to make sure we could sit together with our children and gave us tips on how to get best views in the cable car etc. thanks for the fun!

We had a great tour with Mario as our guide. He was very informative and tailored the tour to suit what the small group wanted. I would definitely recommend this small group tour.

The pick-up was on time. The ride was very good and safe. I recommend this to all. Only suggestion is that you can include one one place which is very near.

Good weather and nice trip. Tourist guide picked up us in time. He is a very good character and nice person.

Nice tour with time to explore and enjoy the area. Thank you Mario :-)
