Our tours have a maximum of 10 people per week, that way we can keep it personal and give the best experience we can offer. You will also have enough free-time to relax and explore at your own pace and none of the events planned are obligatory. Each day varies with different activities, with one free day available to explore the sights and attractions that you wish.
