A Recent Review of this tour

Joao was very professional and pieced together a comprehensive private tour well suited to my wife and I, especially since she uses a wheel chair. It would have been much harder if we were trying to fit in to a ship-sponsored tour. As an aside we were able to learn more about family life in the area. I recommend him.
