A Recent Review of this tour

We not only got to fish (and catch) on the lake, but he took us to feed the monkeys with peanuts from our hands, and pointed out other wild life on the lake - so was also a nature tour in addition to the fishing trip. We got to eat the fish we caught for lunch - great day! Thanks Juan!
