too expensive. Guide great, place also fantastic

I don't think it's nice that you have to pay so much more as an individual. I wanted to go with a group, but I couldn't. The booking cost me more than 5 nights in the 5-stene hotel. ?? !! My guide was super nice and well organized. I really liked the tour itself.

Perfect Tour with an excellent Tour Guide.
