This tour was great. It was very relaxed and easy going. The guide was sweet and had lots of little stories with local color. I also liked that he was very low key about the tipping aspect and not pushy at all, which made me...More

Typical amounts paid on the day we were there were in the $10-$20 US range. Just remember, you will need cash because they do not take credit cards. I believe you can pay is US dollars of in pesos.
