We first experienced the organization get your guide as very pleasant during our trip. The tour was super and the quad was very good and a real monster. A photographer will also accompany you, but agree in advance what the price is because otherwise he will first take pictures and videos and when you are on the beach you get absurd prices and you have to negotiate there and then it is expensive and it ruins your mood. We had chosen to have everything sent by e-mail for 40 dollars in the end but did not get the photos in contact with get tour guide who went after it very well and it came in and the videos the next day With MTS you have to download a different way. You can also choose to have everything put on a USB stick, but that is even more expensive. The contact with the owner of the tour also went well, just ask for his telephone number in case something goes wrong.

It was a tour where you got a quick little impression of the city and country. From the cheese factory to the biscuit "factory" and from a family home to the cigar factory, you could see something, but always buy something! You could also call it a cultural sales trip. Everyone needs to know if this is for them!

This tour was AMAZING ! I highly recommend once a once and a life time experience, Alex and Mega tours were the best tour guides, we were taken care of every single step of the way

An experience to live, it was the first time for me. I loved the dives and slides in the natural pools. The vegetation is lush

The experience was wonder and my husband and I would do it 10x again. Thanks again
