This was an exceptional tour. Great value for money. Our guide knew the history of the area thoroughly and was enthusiastic. His knowledge of and interest in the flora and fauna were fantastic and infectious. The only downside was the airport ride and this was not his fault. We did not go to hear the captain's view of President Obama!

Great guide but for the prince not worth it. At. Minimum. Simple lunch or something should be included.
