Did 2 private full day tours - one of the city and one in the jungle - with Jorge. We had a great time, I’d definitely recommend to a friend. The tours were interesting and he was knowledgeable and passionate.

Our guide (Gonzo) is a top notch one - He is well articulated, knows his craft and doesn't treat you like "one more tourist". Higly recommended.
