This was a nice journey to the Sierra Nevada mountain range. It was precarious in parts because the vehicle is large and some of the unpaved roads were thin and on the edge of mountainside, but that was part of the adventure. Guide was amazing! Patient and easy to speak with and understand.

Jaime (the guide) was great -- very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was very nice with a few stopovers with fantastic views, ending at a lodge which has really good food. I had a wonderful time!
