Avoid this company if you want to enjoy your visit. After confirming via email 3 days before, the tour operator failed to show up at the provided time. When contacting their local number provided on one of the automated Viator emails they had no record of our booking. This was arranged by a third party from a local operator and 'forgot' to tell them about our booking. The local operator scrambled to get something put together but it was sub par. We had to wait an extra 2 hours for them to arrange a guide and a car, then when they arrived, the guide was not in the best of moods as he was pulled from his day off. The location is 160 KM away, or 4 hours, so the driver was hauling to make up for lost time. Once at the site, the guide rushed us through the activity in order to come back down the golden rock as soon as possible, hindering our enjoyment as we just rushed to things. The included lunch and dinner were substandard, the lunch was fine, but the dinner was supposed to be overlooking the pagona and it ended up being generic noodles in a shopping mall, definitely something not worth the price of the tour. On the way back it was again off to the races with the driver going at crazy speeds in the dark road. Oddly enough the driver became ill on our way back and we stopped at a road-side 'doctor' for his fever. The guide took over the driving.... and was off to the races again. Overall, while the local provider was accommodating, the disposition of the local guide and the rush made this tour not worth our anticipation and money. Please stay away from this company and look for a more professional company with good reviews.
