Alec Lobo is without a doubt the best guide I've had. We had a four day tour with him and my fellow travelers and I were delighted. His English is great, he has a depth of knowledge of all aspects of the culture and is able to convey it in understandable terms. He's is very organised and super professional, has a great sense of humor and an easy going charm. He's a geologist by training and very well traveled, also worked with Oxfam in disaster relief management. You will not go wrong with Alec on board.
