This is an excellent tour and I would highly recommend it.
If I had one wish it would be that the tour bus was more comfortable and came with some amenities (bath, water/coffee etc.).

This was a long ride but our guide made it enjoyable every step of the way. His explanation concerning the TORRES just added so much more than I ever imagined possible. It was worth the time and money.
