Although the guide explained everything very well on the tour, I felt that I really did not enjoy how it should be because much of the time you spend on a bus, rarely interact with nature, nothing like anything I had imagined it was . In conclusion, in my view, a lot of money to last 80% of the trip mounted on a bus.
