Thank you for everything ! John was very nice and made this experience a very nice day. We had a lot of hitchhiking, the trip was rich in anecdotes and explanations. The driver drove very well, he was very friendly and caring. Thank you for this discovery. All the landscapes were absolutely beautiful even in the winter season. We had come with some reluctance and a priori and we are finally totally convinced. We absolutely recommend this tour!!
