nature is the best healer! The decision to go on the tour was absolutely correct. the whole tour was held in a comfortable mode, thanks to a very nice girl guide - Nadia. she very correctly conducted a conversation with all the guests of the tour, and unfunnyly plunged into the history of the region.

The transport was very comfortable, the car modern and clean. The jungle guide Ishmael also very professional and friendly. Everything went smoothly and as planned. Absolutely recommended.

The host and driver was great. He did not participate in the activities, but gave very good insights about them. Pickup from my hotel was very timely.

The whole trip was fabulous! Mathew was a super tour guide who went above and beyond!
