Guide was very good person. But no information came until the evening of one day prior to the tour date regarding the meeting time. Finally I could connect an operator after several times callings. It frustrated me a lot. The second point as complain the tour finished by 4 hours although the website says 7 hours for whole time. In addition, I wanted to try canoe as option, but a local owner of canoes refused our guide for our usage. You should have made sure if it's available or not in advance. I paid about 220 $ for this tour. Only a few points for visit by a car costs a lot.
