Mr Ivanovic was an excellent guide. He was very informative and at the end of the tour he dropped us off at the hotel. I left a small pouch in the car on the floor (surprised he saw it) and he returned it to the hotel later that evening. How very nice of him to return to the

Thank you for you review Sally. I was really impressed for your group since you have been interested on place we visited, history, nature and else. Not everybody is, so that kind of tours always happens well. I would really like to see you here with me again in other season. Wish you all best. Andres

Andy It was my pleasure to be with you on tour. I also learned something from you and your part of England. Tours like that always happen well, special for those travelers interesting in areas, history, geology and else. But yes. I have been in situation when travelers didn´t been interesting due to some reason and in the end of tour I feel bad since question in my mind was if I have done something wrong. But travel with was completely opposite since you both were interesting in regular things and details. Regards Andres

Thank you Sari for this Review. Very true. I haven´t any reason to push aditional preassure on travelers since we are talking about vacations and they are made to relax and not to be on rush. At all speed on both tours wasn´t and will not be in future like Niki Lauda can done, however his or mine business aren´t same one. :) Thank you to be my guest. Andres
