It was a great tour to get out of the busy city and enjoy the countryside. We were with the Spanish and English group so we basically got so much information from both guides! Thank you Dani for all your recommendations and knowledge of all the places we went to

Very complete and very interesting tour. I think it would be advantageous to have a little more time at some of the stopping places. The guide was super attentive to my request to speak a little slower so that it could be understood by our group of Portuguese people. Well organized and excellent choice of transit points :)
