Traveler Comments

Good for beginner riders

- SCOTT W, JAN 2020

Shuttle pick up from our hotel was on time. We enjoyed that the group was small, with just 6 people total. We had a great guide, Augustino. He was very knowledgeable about the area. We lucked out and had clear views of the volcano during our trip. Our guides were helpful in getting us great pictures and pointing out wildlife. Would definitely recommend!
