A very nice tour with a great group and a great guide!!! I had only booked a half day tour - my guide had made it possible for me to upgrade the tour on the spot. Thank you again for that!!! I would book this guide and this tour again and again.

If you’re not sure if this is the right trip for you, stop wasting time and just book. I haven’t had such a good time on a trip is soo long! 10/10 with everything and thanks to Adolf our driver and guide for the experience.
