The landscapes were amazing and it also helped that we had really nice weather. The tour doesn't seem to be too popular yet, which is a pity as there is more of Nice to see and enjoy. The one thing they need to definitely improve though, is their customer service. Hence why I don't give them a higher rating. A few pointers here: - They mentioned that they would let you know where to meet them for pick-up. They didn't and 2 days before the tour I had to reach out to them via Viator and then also online, as nobody was picking up the phone at their end. Finally, I heard back form them 1 day before the tour; which in terms of planning make it a bit nerve wrecking and makes you think that you are about to lose money, because it could be a fake company. -The tour also mentions that there will be water provided, which is not the case. Luckily we took some with us, just in case. So if you don't offer it, then remove it from the list.
