Overview

My groups will never exeed 17 guests (normally we around 6-12). The van is comfortable and has both AC and heating. I am an expieranced authorized guide an have done these tours for 8 years. My aim it to keep everthing as personal as possible and to make you feel like we are a group of friends travelling together. I do have excellent reviews from previous years, just look for reviews of "Urban". Earlier I worked for other agencies like STOEX but now I am by my self. I can guarantee good service, knowledge, english and sympathy. It is almost like a private tour.
