We stopped a number of places we weren’t expecting to see which added to the experience, and we passed though the areas where Jessy and David were born and grew up, which made us realise how in touch with the local area they both were.
On top of all of this the views were stunning, and although it was a long day overall we felt the time passed by quickly with watching the landscape. Not to mention the waterfalls. I would also recommend the zip lining through the jungle!
If you are interested in not only seeing the beautiful views but hearing about the local area definitely choose this tour. We’ll be back!
Jimmy the driver is a very experienced South American driver familiar with the local flow and areas. He was consistently safe and efficient.
Highly recommend the tour! Be ready to hike!
