"Muy buena experiencia"
Es fundamental obtener información sobre las cosas y no solo deleitarte contemplándolas. Recomiendo un horario más temprano para evitar el calor de medio día.

"Experiencia muy positiva. Muy buena guía , precisa, metódica y detallista."
Estamos impresionados del tratamiento de la agencia al anular, por causas familiares, una entrada de las cuatro que componían nuestro grupo. No pusieran pegas y en media hora comunicaron devolución del dinero. Que forma tan seria y profesional de ganarse clientes . Recomiendo este tour. Recibes ampliamente lo que pagas.
