“This has to be the best tour I have been on my entire life. The service was amazing and I was fortunate enough to have some of the best guides. Our bus driver, Carlos, went above and beyond helping us get the best view of the sunrise by being there early, taking creative pictures of us, and even making an extra 3 minute stop at spot where you can hear a really cool echo. Carlos also had plenty of information to share with us about where we were and a few cool stories during the bus rides.”
