We enjoyed our tour, pick up was on time, our driver Jean knew his stuff and local history, a well informed and traveled man, and a very good driver. If we wanted to stop for a photo or something we could, and it all made for a relaxed atmosphere. The rainforest trek was a feature, plus the exclusive access with it, not something we'd otherwise see and experience. Everything was well timed so there was no rushing to get things done, and this appealed to us. The time allocated for the tour was a nice amount of time without it being an all day marathon from just after dawn til dusk, which when you're older you don't necessarily want to do all day marathon tours.
