Two negative points. Bank machines are usurious. To get 4,ooo pesos out of an ATM costs 650 pesos a rate of about 16% of the total value of the withdrawal and may places claim to take Visa say the machine doesn't work. The second negative was a driver who texted twice while driving and would regularly take both hands of the stirring wheel. All other drivers were splendid.
Great experience, great prices, very responsive! I loved the fact they send you a personalized website address where you can have all the details about your trip. I highly recommend it!
The journey in Brazil was a wonderful experience in every way. We had a very varied program that gave us good memories. It is becoming too extensive to go into detail. The people, visual impressions, smells and light cannot be shared but must be experienced. Many thanks to Ryan, all the guides, drivers, skippers and everyone else who made this an unforgettable experience for us two from Norway.Read More Read More Less
Everything was perfect. Every airport pick-up and return was vert prompt, even one at 5:45 AM. All tours were good. If I was repeating this tour I would skip the Puerto Madyrn area. It was ok but wrong time of year to be there.
