We had a great experience with Andrea. Her English is very good and she showed us amazing sights. We spotted a lot of animals like crocodiles, flamingo’s, white ibis and Pelicans. She told us a lot about the animals and nature.
The boat was nice and she brought water and cookies. We came with our 5 yo daughter and she enjoyed it very much
Saul took us on an amazing sunset tour on New Years Eve. He was able to point out and identify all the birds and he gave us an in-depth introduction to the reserve, its history, flora and fauna. He was clearly very interested in the subject and he was as excited as we were at what we saw. Unforgettable experience, highest recommendation.
