The entire tour was just we hoped for and then some. Our guide Alejandro was very knowledgeable, and engaging. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel by a very capable driver, Eduardo, and felt very comfortable along the route. Alejandro showed and told us us about many interesting sights on the way to each destination as well. All of us in our group would recommend this tour and the guide and driver.
