A Recent Review of this tour

We had such a good day with Joe. We didn't give him a specific itinerary of what we wanted to do but just asked for him to put together an interesting day for us - we were not disappointed! His knowledge of the area, and the political, economical and religious differences was huge and we learnt so much. I would definitely recommend it to other travellers! Thank you Joe!
