Passion for Culture

The team and service was amazing. They took great care to meet every need. The interactions between the porters and guides was really fun to watch. Clearly they respect and enjoy each other's company. One of the porters in particular was a jokester and was always teasing and being teased. Another of the porters was working on knitting hats during ... Continue Reading
