The guide are good. Nice and friendly, but they didn’t help us to find the heart shape salt as the other review mentioned. maybe that’s not easy, but that’s ok, including lunch and water is good.
The pick up and drop off...

The pick up and drop off were the best. The driver was very good. Frank was flexible and friendly. These 2 people worked hard. Overall, the tour were good except the walk in a very hot dessert to see the flamingos which we didn’t even see that close. No shades at all & and someone can get easily dehydrated.
A sight to be seen!!

I had the time of my life the pink water, the crocodiles, the food!!! Well worth the long bus ride! My tour guide was knowledgeable and fun! I also met some nice people there.
Truly Amazing experience

This was an amazing tour from start to finish. Our tour guide Mr. Toledo and driver Juan was incredible and professional. Mr. Toledo explained everything to us about each activity. The bus was a smooth ride on a nice 50 seater with AC and Wi-Fi. They provided a bag lunch (breakfast) and lunch in a restaurant. Would definitely recommend. This is a full day tour expect to be ready 6am and return after 9pm due to drop offs at multiple hotels
great tour that has the potential to become perfect

Pros: Great tour, amazing, good and funny guide
Cons: Bring warm clothes for the bus, bring snacks and water! Even if they give you a small bottle of water, have your bottle.
Unfortunately it felt rushed and I liked it so much I would have liked to stay longer at each stop, but of course there is not enough time if we wanna do everything. Lunch was not enough, so bring snacks!
