I have to say the whole experience is really amazing!!!Both of our guides are great and interesting. And they’re really good at telling stories and making the atmosphere! Personally I cannot come up with any improvements since the two ladies are perfect. Both me and my boyfriend agreed to give a 10 out of 5! And we let our friends know about this amazing trip! Thank you for making this trip so interesting and attractive!
