Reviews of Day Tours Classic

Wonderful experience!

A wonderful experience! Excellent organization. The whole tour is a wonderful combination of beautiful landscapes, contact with native peoples and emotional moments. Get the train ticket with the bus. It makes it much easier than just buying the ticket and heading on your own to the train station.
