We did 3 tours with this group over 3 day’s. This is a professionally run group and has excellent guides. They were enthusiastic, informative and fun. We never did find Llama eggs but we are still looking!

原计划定了三个Tour,然而因为大雪关闭了好几个景点。好在他们家为了我们重新制定了行程,而且可以最后一秒定行程。 最后参加了彩虹谷和间歇泉的Tour,向导Fillip和Chris都特别有经验,给我们讲了很多很多,他们都能说很好的英语,所以这没有任何问题。 Great experience with them! Highly recommended!
