What people are saying about Bolívar

Super! Die Maschine und die Prozeduren geben ein sehr sicheres Gefühl. Man erhält einen Handystick mit einer Weitwinkel-Kamera zur eigenen Bedienung und am Schluss den Chip. Die Route (15 min) führt den Strand entlang, leider nicht an der großartigen Skyline. Aber der Überblick über die gesamte Halbinsel ist großartig. Zubringer pünktlich und schnell. Ein feiner Spaß!

Our guide, Andrea, and her team were professional and very enjoyable. The way she interacted with the community we move through was exceptional. Food choices were delicious albeit fried food was prevalent as street food. We were all very full and happy. I completely recommend this tour!

Amazing time. The guides were wonderful and super nice and helpful. The horses were beautiful and a great ride. The food was fantastic. The whole experience was one I will never forget. I highly highly recommend to all.

Cómo usuario de silla de ruedas debo decir que fue una grata experiencia. Personal calificado y presto a colaborar. La sensación de libertad es difícil de describir. Super recomendado

The exact location was really hard to find! Our taxi driver had to ask several times along the way! However, the staff was very friendly and the paratriking activity was super-fun!
