Cyra was an amazing guide and way beyond what I was expecting. She went out of her way to help members of our group organize excursions and travel not included in the tour, and was always willing to help us sort out any problems or questions. Her organization of group meals was also much appreciated and one of the things I enjoyed the most. She also had excellent resources for us, such as maps, and was always able to provide helpful recommendations of sites and things to do.

Ricardo was a very good leader whom we felt delivered great service in an easy going manner. He made us feel extremely comfortable with his professional leadership, gentle good humour and considerable knowledge of the cultures and places we visited. He engaged in all of the activities with infectious enthusiasm.
