Increíble excursión! Son 7 paradas y cada una tiene su encanto: la costa de la muerte fue espectacular y poder ver ese tipo de paisajes junto con la historia que los acompaña, es realmente un gusto.

El tours es exelente lugares muy bonitos y históricos, la comunicación con la agencia del tour debe ser no menos de 24 horas antes del tour no menos de eso para confirmar lugar de recogido.

The bus is modern and comfortable, the tour guide was friendly and efficient and spoke good English. The tour was well planned and enjoyable.
