This was one of the best tours. I am sorry I can’t remember our guides name but she was a mature woman (speaking as one) who had recently lost sight in one eye. She was very knowledgeable and passionate. She had to leave quickly for another tour and there was no chance to tip her but she was worthy of a tip. Just make sure you arrive at the right entrance, be careful with Google maps.

The visit with a very friendly guide. A single language spoken which facilitates the visit. Thanks again to our guide who allowed us to have a good time in a beautiful park.

Excellent Gide and she was very knowledgeable. Answered everyones questions. The experience was comfortable. It is definitely worth a visit

Guide was very informative and engaged well with the group. She should have a bigger sign to make locating her at start of tour easier.

Convenient visit to the park without waiting in line. More information when exploring the park with a guide.
