This was far and away one of the best tours we've taken on any of our trips! Jose was unbelievable, giving us personal touches to the experience throughout the trip based on things we mentioned or were interested in. Super flexible, friendly, knowledgable. It felt like we were travelling with a close friend who we had known for our entire lives. Would absolutely recommend this for anyone, particularly if you would like to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time.
