What a fabulous tour. It was perfect with a hotel pick-up and personal service all the way. The trip is as described and highlights were hiking through the rainforest, swimming in the river by the waterfall, a lovely lunch and being paddled downstream in the canoe, stopping to drink tea from water boiled in bamboo canes. Our guide was excellent and helped us to find a wealth of wildlife and fauna.
