This tour exceeded my expectations. Good communication from the company. They update us about the pick up time, as we were the last. Few different stops on the way, cheese tasting and wooden town. Beautiful view on the top. 3 hours free time to enjoy. It felt differently in this place, peaceful. Prices are very affordable even though it’s a touristic place. On the market nobody force to buy anything (not like other touristic places). We really enjoyed our day. And we definitely recommend this tour.

This trip was absolutely amazing! We had a great time and I loved the mixture of the guided tour and free time. I do wish I would have added the Hot Springs, but I didn’t bring my swimsuit. I was traveling alone but the guide and other travelers were very friendly, and I didn’t feel alone at all. Highly recommend!
