Nice tour and friendly guide who shared lots of interesting facts about the place. Besides hiking through the red canyon, we were offered a fun jeep tour and could enjoy beautiful views along the way. Some stops that we didn't expect were even added to the tour which was great!

We had a great tour through Tinma park and even explored modern copper mines while driving off-road on the way to the park. The guide was very friendly and happy to share his knowledge about the area.

Alex is a cool Jew, he is super open minded and explained us not only the natural things about the tour but also any other questions we had on their culture. 100% recommended !

A fun and interesting trip for those that love natural environs

So beautiful, so much fun, and Alec was a great guide.
