A Recent Review of this tour

We went on 2 tours with David, and enjoyed both tremendously. He was very attentive to our needs and physical abilities on the first day at high altitude, very knowledgeable about history, culture and traditions of the region-always had a story about something. We felt very safe driving in his car and liked his selection of places to eat lunch. Overall experience was like be shown around by a friend, and I totally recommend his services.
