Diana & Stef are the DREAMTEAM!!! LIVE MUSIC from the bus driver before the start and from both of them every conceivable help with the destinations. Unsolicited photos taken - tips for food and free toilet - explanations - more than attentive !!!!! This team cannot be topped!!!! If you are lucky enough (just ask) to drive with these two, you will experience something unprecedented!!!

To do although this is the typical example of the bus which dumps its cargo of tourists en masse... But the villages and activities are nice and grouped together in a small area to go around in an afternoon or morning. the information distilled by the headphones of the bus is also nice. Be careful, there are two sides (all-inclusive and not): I still recommend the all-inclusive in order to enjoy everything you just have to be there...

Very nice and organised tour. I would only add that the company should make a drawing of the pathway from the entrance of the central station to the meeting point for those that aren’t so familiar with the place or that are running late. The guides were great and we had enough time to enjoy at every stop. I recommend this tour.
