We were very pleased that we have a private excursion on this. The guide was very good and she really did try and highlight the key points for us to see. Would highly recommended a tour like this if you only have a really short period of time to see all 3 places. The pick up should be better. The driver arrived late due to mis communication I presume about the location of the place where we stayed. There was no proactive management on the company to call and find out. We have to actively do this. We would have given this a 5 star on the guide, Pick up: 3 star.
