The group was made up of people of the same age who were all travelling, so we were able to get along really well and swap stories about travels. Irene was a fantastic guide from the very start. She was bright and happy and enthusiastic throughout the trip. She knows a lot of the locals around the coast so travelling was made easy and hassle free. The schedule was still flexible enough for us to spend our own time at the different towns and do your own thing at night. I've travelled independently many times before, but I don't think I could have seen or experienced as much by myself. And it was made all so much better by Irene's enthusiasm and knowledge of the area. Really great value for money and a must do if you want to travel this region!                                                                                                      Read more
