Our guide was fantastic but the excursion was a bit long. I could have spent less time at the beach where we ate lunch. It was a bit of a tourist trap and I got sick from the food there. Everything else was great.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. It’s a big plus that we didn’t do any unnecessary activities that are often included in organized tours. Highly recommend it!
