    J'ai passé un séjour génial en randonnée. C'était très bien organisé, avec un super guide local et un guide de montagne. On se sentait en sécurité à tout moment. Merci pour tout. Je recommande vivement +++.

    Nous avons eu la chance de voyager avec l'agence et nous gardons un souvenir incroyable de notre voyage !! Tout était parfaitement organisé. Avant notre séjour nous avons pu discuter avec Kalyinur pour lui expliquer ce que nous voulions et ce que nous pouvions faire en termes de sport. Kalyinur a pris le temps de concevoir un programme et de répondre à nos questions pour nous rassurer. Une fois sur place, tout s'est déroulé à la perfection. Si vous hésitez encore, je vous recommande vivement !
