The company had a great private tour organized but more importantly, when the balloon ride was cancelled they worked all day to find us one the next morning. We were very blessed to have them.

Ilyas es muy amable y gracioso, te hace el recorrido muy divertido! Explica todo y se preocupa para que no queden dudas ! Es capaz de hacer el tour en inglés y en español a la vez!

Everything is fantastic, except for the visits to the jewelry and clothing vendors. The rest is great, the guide speaks very good Spanish.

I was able to efficiently go around the place I wanted to see in a day! The guide was also kind and very enjoyable.

Excellent guide, magical landscapes and a very good food
