The tour was more than I expected. I was very pleasantly surprised, and the guide took extra care to make sure I was safe the entire time. I really appreciated it.

No problem installing eSim. Haven’t had a problem accessing data. Daily 1 GB sufficient given that I also have access to WiFi at the conference I attended

It took a while to connect. I followed the instructions to set up the VPN, etc., and was connected after a while. After connecting, it was comfortable.

This is was an amazing trip! Everything is taken care of!
