A Recent Review of this tour

Olga is a delightful young lady with perfect English. We asked for a scenic tour and she gave us exactly that along the Wild West coast of Corsica. The scenery was stunning and Olga's expert driving made light of the windy roads. We left after one of the most memorable days we've ever experienced. Would highly recommend!
