    When booking make sure it’s not on a holiday weekend. Our tour guide was very informative when he had time. He was juggling two tours at once which left him running back and forth. He spent a lot of time explaining what the next steps would be and where to meet him when we were finished instead of giving history of what was around us.

    The tour was very good . The tour guide Wissam was a wealth of information on the history of the falls and park. He was attentive to the needs and wishes of our small group, 5 Myself and a very nice family of 4 from southern cal. He showed use everything with a explanation of what we were seeing.

    We had a wonderful time. Saied was our tour guide. He was very informative. He made sure we had all our questions answered. He made sure we had enough bathroom breaks because we have a 6 and 8 year old. He made sure that we had our tickets to all the sights and walked us as far as he could to make sure we were good to go. He held on to our shoes for the cave of the winds so they wouldn't get wet. I read that some people suggest doing the activities on your own to save money. I promise you that it's not worth it. Do yourself a favor and book your tour with them. Saied was awesome!!
