My day trip was fine. I was a bit disappointed with Get My Guide that I had booked 4 events and tried to book a 5th. I tried emailing to see why I was having trouble booking a 5th trip with no reply. Couldn't book trip. I had booked 4 trips I was wondering why a discount wasn't applied for multiple bookings. Thanks Craig

We really enjoyed our day. It was a very nice discovery. Our guide/driver Nouno was very friendly, knowledgeable and always eager to please us. I hope you take this excursion in his company!
