If you have the time and opportunity, go on this tour! Perfect program, both the activities included and the optional ones. Backpackers hostels had a good standard, their own rooms on them worked great. We were lucky enough to get Cindy, who rarely goes on the tours nowadays, as a guide, she was absolutely outstanding.
