A Recent Review of this tour

Romain was an a great guide and most accommodating. Due to flight complications, we did not arrive in time for our tour. Romain was nice enough to meet us at the airport and we started our tour from there. He was very knowledgeable and easy to converse with. Would definitely recommend him!
