The only thing we did no like, we had to met him in a different place(they paid for the taxi) but it was very unconformable for us, you guys have to figure out that. But in general that company is very good and responsible. Thanks to you guys GET YOUR GUIDE THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SUPER SUPER EXCELLENT.
