This tour was recommended at the Eva hotel. We had the best use of 1:15 hr tour. The guide Ernest showed the interesting views and location + history of town and proved to be a very good choice of tours in town. Strongly recommend

Amazing, fun outdoor experience with lots of interesting facts and not the ones that will make you fall asleep in the classroom. The tour guy also made us feel very welcome in his country. We were also very lucky to see the flamingos!
