It was a fantastic afternoon. Our driver and companion Paul was absolutely great. In addition to the tour, he also met our wishes and installed further extras. For example, we could even choose from which actors we want to see the villas. He gave us enough breaks to take pictures and we were very satisfied. Thanks Paul !! Californian Dream !!!
