We booked a private tour for six. Eigo was our tour guide and we could not have been more pleased. He was so knowledgeable and pleasant. We saw everything we had planned to see. He timed it so we got to see the geyser explode. We had ample time to see each venue. Our lunch was a wonderful unique experience. We ate in a tomato greenhouse restaurant which was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend this tour.
We had a fabulous experience. Our guide, John, was wonderful. We saw the sights on our terms and in a super comfortable vehicle. A surprise highlight was lunch at a tomato greenhouse. Can't recommend highly enough! We loved it. All ages.
Our only complaint about this experience is that our driver was very reserved. He was professional and timely, but offered little information. We, at times, asked questions to obtain additional information, but received minimal feedback. If someone is looking to be driven to all the sites without wanting to hear about history et al this is a very well run excursion. However, if you are comfortable renting a car with GPS, you would easily have a similar experience and save considerable money.
excellent driver with interresting info about the country. too bad the weather was not with us. But He very gladly added a downtown tour since we were early on the program because of the weather. wery positive experience
