Enjoyable adventure. Good interesting place to visit. Pickups were on time and enough was translated into English to meet requirements. Don't go by any confirmation pickup times received by e-mail, mine were completely wrong, stick with the times shown on the Viator site trip information.I stay at Quechua and would recommend it.
