It was really nice. It was a bit cloudy but not too cold. Our driver and guide was really nice, bring us safely from place to place. The stops were very nice and let us time to take nice pictures. It’s a lot of driving but it was worth it. Thank you so much.

Hauser was our guide, Johann our driver, both were really great. From geographical to historical background, there was exciting information. The tour schedule would be very well adapted to the weather, clear views and sunshine just when you needed it. Despite minus 16 degrees, the two got the most out of it, an unforgettable tour, a big thank you, we look forward to seeing you again!

The tour is very interesting, I was in these places in the summer, but in the winter it didn’t disappoint at all, the group was not large, we had time everywhere, we didn’t get only to Kirkha in Budir, but it wasn’t the driver’s fault, they cleared the snow there and it didn’t make sense to wait, daylight hours very short
