The guide Charly is a fantastic guide. He knows SO SO MUCH about everything that it makes the whole experience a 10/10. My wife and I really enjoyed this trip and learn a lot about every place we visited. I totally recommend this tour and specially this guide. He enhanced the tour putting some great music and poems that were related to the places we were visiting.

Our tour guide Darren was excellent tour guide. He explained us all the details during the trip in a very pleasant way. We all enjoyed his companion. Also the tour was planned fabulous. The boat trip and the spots that we stopped were perfectly planned. We sure will be looking new trips with him and his company for the new sightseeings.
