Richard was the best travel guide. He was so knowledgeable and kept us going on time. Traveling around with that many people can be difficult but he made it very enjoyable. I enjoyed all the locations stops and the time allocated at each stop. It was a great tour and thanks to Richard the day was made even better

This tour is really packed and feels a little rushed, not the tour company’s fault at all, but just keep in mind that if you want to see all of these places in one day, there will be very little time at each stop to actually explore

Chris and Alexander were the expert guides. Their insight and insider tips were spot on to get the most of this experience. Nice blend of humor and history. Would definitely recommend

Our guide Leon and our bus driver Carlos were amazing. Carlos got us everywhere quickly and safely and Leon was extremely knowledgeable.

The guide was very good who made the journey more interesting. One must enjoy the ride
