A Recent Review of this tour

We booked the daylong trip with Alex. He picked us up on a day of increasing coronavirus-related government restrictions on gatherings, especially involving foreigners. Despite all this, we had a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing what he could show us and tell us about (including his continued "amazement" over the lack of traffic). We did see most of what was originally planned, visiting San Isidro (his hometown) and the Tigre Delta area, but no boat ride or lunch .. which were not possible.
