Extremely bad weather may affect visit to some of the places. In that case we would see some other attractions instead.

- my guidance
- local guides in some of the destinations
- transportation + private driver.
- some trip expenses for providers of the tour
(NOTE: if one or two people, the price of the tour is 6000 USD)
(NOTE 2: Having a private driver for this type of tour is important. The driver is taking care of the vehicle and picking us up and dropping us off, without us having to worry about parking and managing the vehicle, which saves up huge amount of time. It also enables the guide to fully engage in conversations and explanations, without having to be focused 100% on the road).
- accommodation and food for you (you are taking care of your own accommodation, but if you wish I can help you find it)
- admission fees (aproximately 120 euros per person)
