The tour was a great experience overall. Our guide (Andrea) was on time, very motivating and knew his stuff perfectly. We learned a lot about history and nature and had fun during the hike. The included lunch was also very good, no additional or surprising costs. Wishes are addressed and the tour is tailored to individual needs. The landscape is very great and a trip is definitely worth it. Round trip transportation was smooth and comfortable.
