This cost includes entrance fee, coach fare, drivers tip, and a one and half hour guided tour for our group by a professional guide.

After the tour the rest of the day is our own to explore the many attractions.

The economics of the trip are based on us filling 40 seats of a 53 seat coach. So please invite your friends to support us. Any seats filled over our target figure will enable us to have a refund on the cost.
