It was a really nice trip. The guide was very knowledgable and funny. He gave great recommendations of other places to visit, things to eat, things to buy, etc. I would have enjoyed having a little bit more time in the 4 stops we had. Fifteen more minutes would have been great, and it would have taken only 1 more hour. The stops were beautiful locations where you could easily spend a whole day.
