Had a wonderful trip. It was not a luxury resort but very clean and food was wholesome. We were kept busy through out the day with activities. Electricity was only for three hours in the evening- just about enough time to get our phones charged. The staff and guides were very helpful - though the language was a bit of a problem. However it was an adventurous trip and I thoughrly enjoyed myself

Elmer has been a great expert guide who knows the area very well, is helpful, dedicated and very professional. We loved the tour and the treatment provided. We would definitely hire the excursion again.
