    My friend and I booked this private tour because we had a flight to catch in the evening and didnt want to get caught up in a group tour that might not get back in time. We made the absolute BEST decision to go with this private tour! We were picked up at our hotel by Richard. We were able to store our belongings in the car while he drove us to a beautiful spot for breakfast and then on to the hike! He navigated the winding roads with ease and the ride was very comfortable...especially to catch up on some sleep. Once we got to the hike we made our way up to the lagoon which is more than stunning! And worth the steep walk! Richard was patient as we made out way up. He also knew all the best spots to take pictures and offered to take multiple pictures of us at this natural wonder. We stopped for lunch on our way back which was delicious. And he was nice enough to drop us at the airport. It was a perfect day! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Richard is very kind and accommodating guide! Thank you!
