Your guide met us right at the train station. A little confusion because some of our group already had bus tickets up but this tour does not include that, but our tour guide was very helpful and made buying the bus tickets very easy. Very knowledgeable tour guide, and he stopped to let us take lots of pictures! Don’t forget to apply sunscreen even if it is cloudy/rainy and bug repellent is great to have too. Overall great tour!
