“The trip was amazing. The tour guide Nathaly, she is very nice, kind and fun, she engaged with group and indeed was a part of the group. I really had fun. I just wished the trip included activities and all breakfast. But, for the cost it was worth it, you get what you paid for. Best trip ever and the group was amazing, we had fun together.”
