I think the highlight of this tour is Pierre Lotti Hill. The view from the Hill was amazing.

Debbie - January 10, 2019

This tour is a good choice to get a spectacular panoramic view of the golden horn area.

Ray - July 24, 2019

The walk is quite a lot but it is worth to see the view on the top of mountain. We loved it.
