We traveled on three different day trips. Byron, our guide, was wonderful. He was able to assist us on our adventures, treated us with great care and knew many of the local spots to visit. The owner Pablo was ready to help us whenever we called. All of the staff wanted us to have a memorable vacation. I would highly recommend this company. Everyone was great.

I was the only person on the tour, so I really appreciated the fact that the tour was not cancelled just because I was the only person.
