3 star rating: Worth doing February 2013

We expected something a little more private. This tour has large groups and our party was unable to sit together. It caters primarly to the local tourists.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2012

The hotel shower in the bathroom leaked all over the floor, I reported it to the office, they cam up and did something but it continued to leak the next day.

I was not provided a consistent schedule of what time and where I would be picked up each day, the hotel clerk had the info but not myself.
