This tour was amazing and honestly worth every dollar. We had Arnel as our driver and guide and honestly, his company really enhanced the experience! He was patient with us as we took our time exploring the sites and never made us feel rushed, while also being friendly and fun to have around. The tour itself was incredible as well. The sites this tour provides access to are amazing and indescribable. The beauty of this tour is that because it was private, we could spend as much time at each location as we wanted to before moving onto the next spot, as opposed to other, larger group tours where there’s a strict time-limit. Overall this was a great experience and a day well spent.
