An exciting and very personal experience from a guide who really cared about giving us this good experience and we definitely got that. There was no doubt about his arrangement and his great knowledge of the area was in a special class. We were very well disguised with the menu with the region's specialities. It is definitely a trip we would recommend others to try.
