A Recent Review of this tour

Tour was absolutely fantastic - Nurelegn arrived on time and all arrangements were perfect. He was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable - answered all our questions, spotted wildlife, provided refreshments. He knew the route well - when to stop and rest and when to push forward. The hike itself was amazing - wonderful views and a great experience - well worth the effort. Driver was safe with vehicle in good condition. Can't rate this tour, and this guide, highly enough - wish there were more stars!
