Excellent tour, clear explanation in English. Quality 4x4 discovery vehicles, we took the 2.5hr tour €40 but add a tip because it’s a well run, honest and professional company and I guess competition keep the cost down. Personally I would have paid double that if...More

Hi. We took the 50/60 tour. We were lucky to have taken the tour with very brief notice. I would recommend making a reservation as the tourist season really gets underway.

They can pick you up from the train station or at a landmark near there. Best to send them an e-mail or make a phone call and ask where. You'll need to make reservations, anyway.
