The whole experience IIsidro and Livi were absolutely wonderful guides. The food was very good because of Ronaldo. Such an amazing place made all the more memerable because of the knowledge and expertise of the Expotur staff.

Ariel was the best tourguide I have ever had. He showed us many nice places and always took good care of us. Together with the translator Heberth and our cook Ledys, they made me have an unforgetable adventure! Muchas gracias para todos!

Excellent from every perspective, but particularly (and most importantly) the guides (Dennis and Abraham C) were INCREDIBLE! Made the trip utterly fantastic for everyone in the group - the most informative, fun, positive, friendly guides I have had on any tour.
