Jennifer · 5 de marzo de 2020
We loved our tour on March 5. Our guide Aina was excellent - very clear with lots of information, fun & easy to understand. She had a great sense of humor and explained everything really well. Instructions were clear and information was interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour to others traveling to the area!!! I would rate it a 10 out of 10! We also loved that it was a small group. My mother who traveled with me is 82 years old and the small group size made it easy for her to feel included and not be a burden to anyone. Aina did a great job of making sure everything was easy to access for her too.
