We loved this tour and supporting an organization that is doing such important conservation/ educational work. Carlos was our tour guide and very informative and humorous!
Our guide, Andres, was very knowledgeable and passionate. We got a private tour and learned a lot about what they did and how they help the animals.
Very good — learned quite a bit.
