What people are saying about Savanne District

Our driver and guide was very professional and well known what he was talking about and how to communicate with people. He arrived at the hotel on time and all journey took us over 6 hours. We visitied all the places and he added little bit extra to the package by explaining and guiding other tours For example rum factory and tea plantation. We visitied outside places first, when the sun was shining. With clouds and little bit rain we had lunch and temple visiting. To sum up, the timing was right because of the proffesional guide.

Very expert and kind guide, it is a pity there is no possibility of having an Italian guide, because unfortunately we did not understand everything that the guide explained to us.

A very nice and informative tour. Learned a lot about the country and its people. Guide was open to all questions and went to great lengths to introduce us to his country/island.

We had our tour with robin and he made sure we had the best experience possible even with mediocre weather. Thanks!

Brilliant day with a fab guide. Lunch was delicious and plenty on time to see the sites
