Superb!!! Lovely landscapes, good people, charming villages!!! I knew people in the countryside are welcoming, but honestly, I wasn’t expecting this amount of hospitality. The car drove us to the mountains and visited some interesting small villages during the day. Each had its own character, and we met some locals. We also went to some places of interest and got infos about them. We also went to some panoramic spots for photos, and the views were impressive. Our guide was exceptional! I recommend this tour to all. A super way to explore the real culture and to hang out with the locals.
I enjoyed everything about this tour. Our day was relaxing and very interesting. What I really appreciated is that we weren’t just touring around. We combined sightseeing and nature exploration. The highlight of the day, at least for me, was the visit at a very old mosque. These villages have their own history and tradition. Food was nice, made with love and local ingredients. From the restaurant we also got some nice views over a river. It was relaxing and revitalising. Amazing tour and absolutely recommended. I’m sure you will also love it!!
