Review for another Tucan Travel tour

“I'm so happy that I chose Tucan tours for my first time trip! I was honestly shocked with how much we got to do with such a low price! We had an awesome group leader that spoke fluent Spanish and that knew a lot of the history of where she took us. I highly recommend Tucan tours. I will definitely be using them again!!!”
