WHAT OTHERS THINK OF OUR TOURS
“Great accommodation provided - single tents with a mattress and pillow, you rent your sheets from the hostel before you leave for the trip. Amazing beaches and lakes to visit. Food is plentiful and delicious, always enough for second helpings for everyone. Tour guide experience can't be matched, Colin knows his stuff and is clear and concise with what we can and can't do. Would definitely recommend.”
