Quick, efficient gets you to where you want to go! Totally recommend! We were back by 1 pm with still the whole day ahead
Excellent value. We saw everything we wanted quickly and easily.
I found this tour that was one third of the price of other website. Timing and organization was perfect. It's worthy mostly for the railway market. The floating market it's not that good but it's not the tour operator responsibility. Thank you for the experience
excellent price and day

Everything was good, except for the driver, who was a total jerk. What an idiot.
