Nice tour and guide!...
Nice tour and guide! Patrick was our guide, and he was a kind and professional guide. It was an unforgettable tour for me. Nice driver and good lunch, I really hope everyone had good time with this tour. And I want to recommend it to my friends. Comfortable and clean car, break time was enough and the time to look around and take pictures was also enough.
