Kid Friendly: Yes.

Friendly: Yes.
Transportation by private car makes it possible to be flexible with driving-walking proportions. Staying more in the car and taking short walking parts on flat surfaces can make it possible to fit the needs of gentle walkers or wheelchair.

A Recent Review of this tour

Balint is wonderful, amazing, incredible.....there aren't enough superlatives. He did such a good job of tailoring his information to our interests. He even helped us with restaurant reservations for after the tour was over and extremely quickly responded to a question we sent him by email. We could not have asked for any better. We've traveled extensively, and Balint is the BEST GUIDE we have EVER had!
