Excellent tour!

This included so many great things. I got to see the volcano as close as we were allowed, as well as some wildlife and plant life of the rainforest. The guide was very patient with the young children in our group and it was a pleasant hike. There were a couple who could not make the hike and they were carted around where they could take them. Could not have been better
