I had a wonderful day touring cillages in the mountains overlooking Calvi. Our driver was kind and considerate and a very careful driver. It was also fun to share the experience with a small group of 6 people. I felt safe in the van with the windows open and fresh air blowing through. The information provided provided was also excellent, including, apart from hisptry, information about Corsican plants, bees and other agriculture.
