This was such an awesome addition to our trip. Victor did a wonderful job leading us along a trail through some short stream crossings, a couple tunnels, out to the black sand beach, to the DC-3 plane crash, and a couple other beautiful stops along the way, both along the beach and in a scenic mountain valley. We were able to have some fun and speed up quite a bit along the smooth sand, while mixing in some gritty terrain, too. I would definitely do this again.

Für Tour war ganz cool, aber es wirkte alles etwas unprofessional und überteuert. Der Guide wirkte, als würde er es nur schnell hinter sich bringen wollen und wir fühlten uns etwas abgespeist. Der Guide fuhr außerdem immer ca. 300 Meter vor und ratterte sein Programm an den Sehenswürdigkeiten nur so herab. Kam man mit ihm aber etwas ins Gespräch blühte er aus und erzählte gerne und viel und war freundlich. Nett war aber, dass der Guide immer wieder fragte, ob sich alle sicher und wohl fühlen.
