A Recent Review of this tour
Read More Reviews For This Tour
Our tour was very tough, long days on rough roads but our guide, Ravo, and driver never complained and always did everything in their power to assist us. Ravo spoke some English and always had books, maps and brochures to fill in the language gaps with all sorts of information. Ravo tailormade our very demanding itinerary and added some suggestions that turned out to be the highlights of the tour. Ravo has great knowledge and passion of his country, highly recommended as well as ToursByLocals.
