This tour was perfect for our 40th wedding anniversary!!!! Although we were the only participants that day, we were treated royally!!! Our guide, Juan, was a most gracious and knowledgeable host. He showed us the sites and kept things moving but never did we feel rushed. He adapted his tour to our physical abilities without sacrificing the quality of the agenda. Visiting the volcano and learning about the glow at sunset from Juan added a romantic quality to our dinner later that evening. We went back for another view and were not disappointed! We enjoyed every minute we were with him and highly recommend this tour!
