I really enjoyed my guided tour. Ipong is a really nice guide. She was informative and always laughing. As a solo female traveller I felt so comfortable spending time with a female driver/guide. I also wanted to mention another guide, Anthony. I got to spend some time with him while I was having my lunch. I found him extremely helpful and very friendly too. I also felt that his English was very good! I would definitely recommend both of them!
