Bad day that this 1st of the year: traffic jams to no end meant that we had to make our excursion at a run. Beautiful landscapes Our guide spoke approximately French but we understood it and he understood us as a whole We were only 3 on the bus and that's cool

Incerdible day out. Our guide Steven was very knowledable and the wildlife was amazing. It was a very relaxed day (mid week) and we were able to spend as long as we wanted at each attraction. Lunch was delicious.
