The guide was excellent!!!! Both Maria , the guide, and Dinos the van driver, we're very polite, helpful and knowledgable! They made our tip so pleasant and stress free! Maria is very charismatic and caring and we were all thrilled to have her as our guide! She wanted to make sure we get the best of our trip and was always willing to accommodate us in anything we needed! I can not recommend them enough!
