The tour is very good, it lasts a considerable time (approximately 12 hours), the transportation is very clean and the guide was very friendly, he explained everything very well and drove in a very cautious way. The only thing is that I thought the cost was a little high for the places we visited.

A few glitches and sometimes commentary a little after the event, but overall great information, and we were enticed to check out the Copper mine museum, which was fantastic.

Absolutely amazing day trip with stunning views. Our driver was very sweet and funny. It was worth all the money.

We did not have internet in the bus as indicated in your add. But trip was gorgeus

Vazil was a great guide! He shared a lot of valuable info
