Excellent tour! We made a short stop in a small town to see the old Roman baths and hot springs then it was on to the hike. Gorgeous scenery out in the country. The hike was somewhat strenuous but the views from the top at the monastery were beautiful. Our teenage kids had a great time and especially loved the caves. Our guide Alberto and the tour company owners were excellent. Would highly recommend this tour.
We were glad that we got to see the windmills and Marken. However, the group was far too large (a full double decker coach bus) for us to be able to see any of the demonstrations that were being done at the cheese factory and the clog factory. There wasn't enough time at any stop to be able to explore and see the area. We felt very rushed. However, the tour group leader was friendly and managed to keep 100 people in check.
