Our guide Diego was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and caring! My wife and I felt very lucky to have him as our guide! He took the time to share regional history, background of 100’s of plants including medicinal purposes, local birds and wildlife, and allowing us to rest when we needed! We highly recommend this tour with Diego!

As there were no other people on the tour it was very individual. Diego took the time for us and answered all of our questions. He is very knowladgeable. We did not have to rush on our hike and could walk with our speed and enjoy the nature.
