A pesar del frío, la lluvia y el viento (la tarde era desapacible hasta decir basta) y que varias personas no aparecieron Bugra fue un guía comprometido, entusiasta y muy profesional.

Un tour excelente. El guía Bugra aporta mucha información relevante. Aunque ya habíamos hecho otros tours, nos explicó muchos más detalles interesantes. El día que hicimos el tour hacía frío, pero ha merecido la pena.
