A Recent Review of this tour

Mario was an amazing guide and really went above and beyond to make the tour fun and educational for our whole group of two families with kids ranging in age 11-17. I would highly recommend him has a guide. We learned so much much in a short time. He was friendly and knowledgeable and everyone enjoyed him.
