It was really a very nice tour. The food was great and the experiences were the crowning glory of our trip. We were a bit skeptical at first but were not disappointed. Selge was beautiful, even if the ladies who want to sell you something are a bit clingy and the Canyon was as beautiful as it was scary.. Transfer, pick-up everything was really great
