If you hope for a nice tour prepare to be disappointed, because this will be MARVELOUS! The tour is simply perfect. GUIDES (M&M) will do all the heavy job by carrying all equipment so you can hike bare hands and moreover they will cheer you up all the way through, and do everything to make your trip more easier, safer, and enjoyable. You will have enough time to admire the views on the way, take lots of photos, have rest. It worth all the money, even too cheap.
