This was a fine tour, and the people contractor Touristour were great. But there was little value added beyond the transit to get to these places, and that's what you're paying for with one exception, which I'll note on that tour's review. If you have time and resources to rent a car instead, you would be well advised to do so.

Minhas expectativas eram maiores. O local é bonito, mas devido o sal, o local é muito árido.
Nossa guia Pâmella, ajudou a me interessar mais por essa excursão, com suas explicações.
