Very well organised! Picked up at the cruise port and because we wanted to stay longer in the town we got a longer ride. Friendly man, he talked about “his” country with great enthusiasm. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Recommended!

We ended up being the only 2 people on the tour! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and learned a lot about the history and local folklore. Highly recommend this tour.

The tour was very entertaining and the fun factor was not neglected. The driver was extremely friendly and very helpful. Highly Recommended :)
