The guide, Benjamin, was excellent! He knows a lot about the places we went to. However, I didn’t like that I was in the car for an hour and a half because we had to go back three times to a meeting point to pick up someone but didn’t show up. The company MUST make a rule that the driver can wait for 5 minutes and leave. Learn to respect the time of those who were picked up first/early.

Informative, professional, friendly

First station volcano, walk together, could also be designed individually. Second station volcano lake (view) with food. San Andreas (hot museum) Joyen der Ceren (insight into parts of the museum that are temporarily closed for visitors) Comprehensively informed tour guide who also speaks perfect English. A successful day, the trip on the Panamericana and seeing the transport habits make the trip worthwhile.
