Me gustan las opciones que presentan para viajes, y el tours hacia los pueblos del lago de Atitlán me encantaron. Aunque sería recomendable en cada lugar dar unas 2 horas para quedarse. También es recomendable desde el inicio poner las opciones con precio de diferentes hoteles, para que el cliente pueda escoger desde el inicio. Y también se recomienda que con el transporte se reserven los asientos de cada viajero, porque en los microbuses son incomodos los asientos pequeños y si se cambia de microbus, lo sientan donde queda disponible.

relacion precio-calidad es mala

los hoteles ofrecidos son de una estrella, sucios y deprimentes., y no ers que el paquete sea barato, es que no se esfuerzan por dar un mejor servicio, con 20 dlls mas por noche estarian mejor los hoteles,
