The excursion with the guide and driver went very well! Their professionalism and commitment really helped make this experience memorable. And thank you also to the staff of the various places we visited for their welcome! I highly recommend this excursion.

A very informative trip, the salt museum and the cheese museum I really recommend, the windmill museum is a bit boring but you can learn how they make gofio flour.
