Our group was small, which made it more enjoyable. Relaxing trip with a lovely, very knowledgeable driver. Fantastic scenery and plenty of photo opportunities. Provided lunch was also great vegetarian option with the perfect backdrop to enjoy it. This is a great tour if you are limited for time. Ideally could spend days exploring all the wonderful areas. A photographers delight.
