    It is very impressive especially if you go with a guide. There are a lot of groups, so you are in a good pace, you can go back in on your own, we did it around 2 pm after the tour and then it is quiet so that you can still view many things.

    Great tour, was pretty easy to find the guide. Once we met he explained what was going to happen and how to get around. The lady that conducted the tour did a phenomenomal job. Even though our tour was only short she went into a good amount of detail and helped you get a full experience. Overall a very good experience

    The tour was very well organised. It involves a lot of walking much of it on uneven ground so comfy shoes are a must. Wrap up warm too. We visited on a nice day but in the very open areas it gets very cold. The free shuttle bus between camps was really handy.
