We really enjoyed the Abyaneh Village tour and learned a lot about the customs and traditions of this ancient village. The only negative point was that we traveled in summer and it was really hot!
Recommended! Just be careful to wear comfortable shoes and carry sun hat to avoid the sun burning you!
