    The ATV to the Circular terraces was awesome!!! And the circular terraces itself was amazing!!! Edgar did a great job explaining the history of the terraces. He also was very patient and kind, staying with me as I huffed and puffed going back up. The same was true of our other guide, whom I missed getting his name. He stayed with me as well during the uphill climb from the salineras. Both of them also took awesome videos of us, making the videos look like it was taken by a drone. Thank you guys for an awesome experience!!!
