Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Check out the local vinyards and local wine!

Liked: Despite being a fairly unvisited country and capital by many travellers, it was certainly worth the effort to visit. There is plently to see in the capital, and other places- such as local vinyards and walking destinations- are within easy public transport reach. Everyone that we met was very helpful and we had a lovely visit (and look forward to visiting again!).

Disliked: The lack of tourist information, as being a fairly unvisited tourist destination, sometimes hindered our exploration. That said, plenty of locals provided invaluable suggestions and help!

Customer Travel Tip: Call a taxi number from airport and you'll explain your destination in English. It's better if you show it on your map. I'll also cost 25% less.

Liked: Nice weather during summer, cheap and friendly :)

Disliked: There isn't much to do at days. Taxi system is terrible, they even don't know main streets, bring your map and mark your destination because the drivers don't know English. Indeed not many people know English here :)
