    Our guide was great!

    Our guide to Isabel was very competent, attentive and kind. Congratulations. As for the agency that served us, you need to be more transparent in your information, as it does not provide a transfer as promised in your advertisement and the Voucher itself to our hotel (Ramada Plaza Telks). When we bought the tour we informed our hotel. Anyway, regrettable.
