    Amazing tour in a small group led by professional drivers. Even though the tour doesn’t imply you’ll have a guided tour, the guys were very friendly and were willing to answer any questions we had while walking around and elaborate on them further. The other advantage is that they can adjust the route and change the order of sightseeing in order to escape crowds from touristy buses. Thanks a lot for the wonderful experience!
