Our tour guide (Nina) not only was very knowledgeable but tried her best to accommodate us during the tour. There was a closed road which disrupted the schedule of the trip but she tried everything she could to make the tour work. She also helped us translate when ordering food and made sure the kitchen knew there were two vegetarians in the tour, so there were no unpleasant surprises. The sights themselves were wonderful and well worth the drive to get to them. We would all recommend this tour and Nina as a guide.
