We were very lucky, there were only 4 of us in the activity, so it was very quiet and we were able to visit everything with less crowds. Simple and clear guide. Recommended!

Driver was excellent. You need to do something with your English audio. It is bearably audible

Excellent tour and really good value. Lots if time to get off the bus and explore.

Was all encompassing tour of the basics of Maters given our limited time

Very well organized and ideal for people with walking difficulties.
