Please note! What's the difference between ECO and Standard tours. In ECO tours, you'll be served with guide-assistant instead of a professional guide. The assistant is a person who's doing practice in our company to learn basics of travel guiding service, knows the basic material of all destinations travellers will visit but he/she is not a professional guide. The car you'll be served is a standard class vehicle and could be with right wheel drive.
In Eco tours, you could be joined to other travelers in contrary to standard tours that are always private, individual ones.
