The guide Pero was incredible. His knowledge of every aspect amazed us. We were 4 (2 couples from same family). He attended to all our needs including making my hubby feel reassured due to his fear of heights. So professional. I would recommend this tour to anyone and you will be very lucky if you have Pero to escort you. Anna
