This tour was definitely the right choice. The pick up service was right on time, also the ride to their was very nice. The Mini Bus was very clean and Mustafa the driver super sweet and friendly. Our private tour guide Mohamad was fantastic as well. He spoke basically any language you can think of. Had knowledge of everything, showed us herbs and what they are good for... it was just so insightful and one of the best guided tours we ever had. The time was perfect, not too long, not too short. We saw a lot, and where able to make breathtaking pictures. Thanks again to Mustafa & Mohamad!

We went on our trip on Wednesday and found it absolutely fantastic, our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the people that lived in the village around the waterfall as he was a local and he even added in a linguistics lesson which I found extremely fascinating. Would recommend this trip to anyone!
