This tour is a perfect family activity. We joined with our little girl and we really enjoyed our day. Many visits at some small villages, multiple interesting aspects, a perfect cultural exploration. The lake visit is an outstanding experience. We entered in a small boat and explore the cave. We had a tour guide with us and gave us an interesting description about it. We also liked the button houses and took several photos at that village. Food was nice, the bus was comfortable. Organization of the tour was great.
Words can describe the beauty I witnessed during this tour. It was a lovely day exploring and observing the amazing countryside. Major highlight of the day was of course the visit at the cave and the boat trip we had there. The waters are crystal clear and have an amazing color. The little charming villages we visited are also interesting. You get to learn many things about the culture of the people living there. If you look for an excursion full of nice landscapes this is the one. Highly recommended for a beautiful day!
