we had great time after we got on the truck! a little confused during pickup since there're many tour operators. you need to pay the entrance fee of $8 per person to get in the View hotel pickup area, then have that receipt with you during the tour when you get on the truck. our guide was awesome, told us stories, sang and took great pictures I don't remember her name but i think she is in her 50th

Beautiful sunset tour up and down the monument, our guide was very good and very kind as well as nice, beautiful moment in which he played a melody for us with the typical flute and explained the traditions of his people. It was very exciting and we would recommend this tour because it is a really beautiful experience, the places visited are wonderful you cannot describe them but you have to live them, it was magical.
