Travelers say: "We really enjoyed our tour and our tour guide. Benjamin was our guide and he was fabulous. He's a native of the area and provided a wonderful background. We found him to be very cheerful, friendly, and knowledgeable. It's easy to say that Benjamin made our day very special. This tour was a good way to see the villages and also have a boat ready for us immediately to move onto the next village. I thought that the cost was reasonable given the transportation and the duration of the tour. Our family enjoyed this day, very much and I'm glad that we were able to schedule it."
