Excellent, both the guide Facundo and the driver Jaco, very professional. The guide showed great knowledge. He gave us a lot of history. It's been a while since we had a guide like Facundo. This excursion is highly recommended. We loved it.

I was a good trip and nice way to see the highlights on a day trip excursion. All day trips you wish for more time.

Passei legal, mas tudo muito rápido, pouco tempo pra aproveitar os lugares.... Não faria novamente.

Personable and knowledgeable guide. Adjustments made due to weather were appreciated.

Facundo es un crack, gracias por hacernos pasar tan buen día
