Very basic tour You spend more time in shops than anywhere else. For lunch they take you to this place with only one restaurant with no other option with tourist prices ... All walking is about 5min from the jeep to the waterfall so no much walking The tour should be more focused on the nature but you get the feeling of being taken like sheep from place to place to spend money

Journey could have been shorten. Sadly the explanations provided in English didn’t bring lots of value. The waterfalls experience is okay but the lunch break is quite long (1h30).
