  • We booked this tour on July 13th to July 14th. The tour guy name Alfred was very impolite and unprofessonal with us. Doing service and as a tour guy, he should not have this kind of behavior with customers. We've booked many tours on this site before and all ended with great experiences. Sorry that I have to write this review but beware.
