A Recent Review of this tour

What a magnificent part of the world! Walter took us to every possible view to get the best pictures and his knowledge was invaluable. Eze was our favorite, very magical village. Traveling with Walter was the best thing we did. He made reservations for us, showed us "secret" places tourists don't go and was a real friend to us listening to our interests. Take the tour with Walter, you'll won't regret it!
