    Guia muito simpático em tour completo Fizemos um tour bastante completo, e que se foi adaptando ao tempo meteorológico. O guia foi amável, discreto, interessante e sempre agradável. Passamos um dia excelente, aprendemos muito, vimos muito e adoramos a simpatia do nosso guia-acompanhante-choffer-etc… Totalmente recomendável. A simpatia do guia não foi em nenhum momento forçada ou “comercial”, mas sim natural e agradece -se muito numa viagem assim! Obrigada pela excelente experiência proporcionada!!
