A Recent Review of this tour

Maria is a fantastic guide! She stayed in touch beforehand, provided suggestions for what to do on our own, and was flexible about where we could meet as well as the pace of the tour. (One of us had digestive issues and needed to go a little slower and stay close to places with toilet facilities.) She is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and gave us so much interesting info about the area. She is also so friendly and warm. I highly recommend her.
