Our driver was polite, punctual and knowledgeable about the area we visited. We went in early December and it was thick snow with stunning scenery both from the mountain tops and in the town itself. its almost post card perfect and great for those instagram snaps! The cheese tasking was a nice addition; not only getting to see how the cheese is made locally - and it really is a "cottage industry" - but also getting to taste it as the locals eat it was a welcome addition. Finally the thermal Spa.... Best way to end the trip. You get plenty of time here - we jad about 3 hours - and the combination of the thermal pools with swim up bar and incredible mountain views is well worth it. The whole bus pretty much slept all the way home we were that relaxed

Absolutely brilliant! Such a great day on Saturday, better than expected. Our tour guide Marious was amazing, he went above and beyond throughout the day. I would definitely recommend to book this attraction. The scenery, the cable car, the thermal baths, cheese trying were all fabulous! Picked up from our hotel and dropped back off. Brilliant day with brilliant service! Thankyou so much

Our driver Gregor was amazing, lovely guy and top knowledge. All the little parts of the trip made it a great experience and to finish off at the spa was the icing on the cake. Would 10000% recommend this trip

excellent professionalism perhaps too much ... wonderful places; Driver Very helpful even after my 2 delays The only flaw you go a bit too fast from one place to another but it's worth it

A great experience from beginning to end. Robert our driver was always at hand and easy to contact. The itinerary is as written and exceeded my expectations.
