    We booked this trip, but the provider started another tour and only corrected it when asked. poor background information, too bad. Furthermore, the pick-up zone was not a problem at the hotel, but after demand it was zero. All in all friendly, nice but still with some homework.

    The landscape was great. The guide was actually just a driver and spoke very little English. However, he was a good and careful driver.
