A Recent Review of this tour

We would give 6 stars out of five if possible. Gerald was great with our family, my two boys, my wife and myself. We hiked Montebelli, walked through a pineapple plantation, visited Massya volcano, and hiked chocoyero. The parakeets were not as agreeable as possible - they did not flock. However, everyone must remember nature does not go by human rules. Nature is as nature does. Gerald is a great person and a wonderful guide. We talked about various items - family, politics, nature, history...
