Our guide Chinara was on time, very nice and well prepared for the tour. We were not at all satisfied with the driver, who was 20 minutes late and then had to refuel. He was neither friendly nor a very safe driver, did not know the area and got lost several times. Instead of 7 hours, the tour lasted just under 5.
