ABOUT THIS TOUR...
This tour is designed for people who have a keen interest in archaeology
and like the outdoors but want to return to a comfortable bed within walking
distance after their hikes. It has been designed to cater to travelers
who want to have sometime to experience on their own and just enough guiding

outings. It is a moderate weave of ecology and nature with living culture
while remaining essentially an archaeology oriented tour.
