Well organized program and excellent guide.

Our guide, Ricardo was one of the best we ever met, he is kind, well prepared and high-skilled. Although the program was long, but comfortable, enough time for sightseeing and have a break also. Thanks.

The tour and the guide, Daniel, was excellent!

This was one of the very best tours we have been on after traveling extensively in Europe and other parts of the world over the past 10 years. Daniel was very informative yet did not overwhelm, keeping everything organized and moving along. He personalized all aspects of the tour, making it extremely enjoyable for the 8 people on the tour. The stops were all beautiful and very interesting and fell in place one with the other. I would highly recommend this tour!!
