The trip was so great.

We were picked up at Airport as arranged. We didn't feel lost when arriving since Veronica - our tour guider waiting for us at the exist door of LDE airport. She went over briefly the tour schedule with us and we started from there. Veronica's very friendly and fully experience. Her English and driving skill are great. We had a pleasant tour with her.
