An all round excellent adventurous fun trip!! Our tour guide Saul was fab with plenty on experience and knowledge throughout the 4 days! The hotels and food for fabulous & the organisation of everything including all the activities was great. Would definitely recommend booking the tour, we are so glad we went! Worth every penny :) The hike on day 2 is pretty long with lots of up hills so that may be something you want to bear in mind. Take comfortable shoes and breathe able clothes as it gets very hot. Pack light too!!

Organization for the transport and tickets are very well done, we have Angel arriving the evening before to explain everything which is so assuring. And thanks to the transport and ticket arrangements we were not caught by surprise with shortage of bus or train tickets. And the guide on site Victor was super informative and a great photographer who took so many great photos for us and explain some good historical details on sites. Highly recommended this trip!!!

Great experience magically and breathtaking. Staff was friendly, professional, informative, and safe. Great experience must do and doing it with all in one is very stress free and worth every penny!!!!!

It was a wonderful experience, one of those that you cannot miss in this life. We met an incredible civilization

It was a great tour, the accommodation was better as I thought
