great experience! You get everything explained in detail and go through every step in practice. The family where the tour takes place is totally trying and nice. There were only two of us with our guide, that was great - he knew English very well and was always joking, we had a lot of fun! We can only recommend this experience to everyone. Tip from us rather wear a short shorts because you are up to your knees in the water / mud.
