The scenery was beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I really enjoyed the day. The only down side was that there was much more time spent traveling than there was actually spent at the sights.

Definitely go out of town to the country once. Now really get to know the country and its people. Lunch is really delicious. Learned a lot about tradition and history. Breaths in the green.
