I've been traveling most of my life around the world and I can honestly say if you are in the right state of mind for a good time you're going to have it on this tour. all the guys are just nice as can be but if you don't have enough money in your pocket to tip these kids just keep on going on down the road and prepared to get wet like everybody says there is a heck of a water fight coming down

This was a good tour with money well-spent. Ismael seemed to know his stuff. Although we did go to see a carpet factory, when I thought we were going to a Craft Market. The carpets were beautiful & they weren’t too high pressure!

Erman, our guide, made all the difference! Very well educated, polite, patient and knowledgeable. Thank you Erman. Also the transport arrangements were impeccable.
