Angel was a great guide! He showed up on time to meet us and was very friendly. He’s very knowledgeable about geology and the rock formation of the area and I loved learning about the history of it all. The sites were beautiful… incredible views!!! I was blown away. Be prepared to walk a lot and hike. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes! I thought I was going to be able to swim in the ocean but there was no break for that which was a bummer. But overall, great tour. You’re going to learn a lot about geology! Oh and the beer at the end was the perfect way to end the tour!!!!
