Nina our guide and driver was excellent - she was extremely knowledgeable, ran a great tour and we had plenty of our own time explore. We previously booked a different tour as we were worried about getting back in time for a flight and the company offered us this longer tour where we saw a lot more, and then dropped us to the airport on the way back which was extremely kind. All in all super helpful, great company and Nina made it a great day - so much to see, highly recommend.

It was a long day, but it was a comfortable day. The van was new and very spacious, and Nina was an excellent guide.

Nina has been a charming guide, all very well. I totally recommend this excursion
