2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2015

The places visited were fantastic, however the tour guide could have been more informative, especially when considering the cost of the tour. We take a tour to avoid reading all the information about a this case, we could have taken more information if we researched about it ourselves. Otherwise it was a pleasant tour.
