This trip went far beyond my expectations. Everything was so perfect since the first moment of my meeting with the guide and the driver. They did everything to make me feel comfortable and they treated me really nice with full respect. The guide is absolutely fantastic! He is very well educated in history and he knows how to communicate so easily.
