    Overall great tour, very informative. The description says to bring headphones, but it does not specify that the headphones are only for translation from English to Spanish or Mung. We had a deaf person in our party, and there was no accommodation for her. Be aware, even though this is a bus tour, still lots of walking.

    Christopher and Ali were our guide and driver… they were awesome! They really knew their stuff! Christopher was so patient with those of us that were older & slower. Ali always had the bus right where it was supposed to be and very punctual. That was much appreciated. We also loved the boat ride. My only suggestion would be that as we sign up for this tour, from the description I was under the impression that lunch was included in the price of the tour.

We learned a lot and was in awe of everything we saw. We got sooo much more than we ever imagined we would. Our tour was worth every dollar we spent for it.
