The tour was right now you are and well organised . The tour guide had a lot of information to share. The only downsized inside charging points. Otherwise all of the stops are very well planned. Make sure you take snacks as lunch isn’t until 230. At the geysers I highly recommend doing first thing around the Geyseys and then having lunch as you only get to 65 minutes at this. I can take 40-you can always eat your lunch in the coach.

The tour was perfect. The guide was really nice and he gave a lot of information. The places were stunning the secret Lagoon so relaxing. Everything was Just perfect.
