Marko is a professional tourist guide. He knows how to introduce himself, present himself, organize the tour, find areas to rest, get shade or get water, then provides full and meaningful information, walks at the right pace and answers all questions. Excellent work.

Wow, I’m pleasantly surprised if not shocked with how good this tour was. Marko is a professional through and through, but still kept it very relaxed and casual. It’s a great tour, don’t let three hours scare you away. Not once did it feel too long, tiresome or even boring. Those hours will fly away. Marko will let you take photos without any rush, and will let you sit for his insightful talks. He is good at answering questions and even better, he’s honest if he doesn’t know. Highly recommend! Thanks for a great tour.
