We had an excellent guide Luis, who was very knowledgeable about the area and went out of his way to make my family and myself very comfortable. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a unique day trip away from the city to enjoy some time in the country side and in the mountains.

Excellent!! Great, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Lots of fun and well worth the added expense to have a private driver and guide there were three of us and not be on a large tour bus!
