Very good trip with a guide who was amazingly thorough and went above and beyond for the group members. Visited all places of interest. Hotel in good location of accessibility and centre and meals were good with a pleasant bar. The room was the only thing id give any negative ratings for due to air conditioning not working as it was out of season so we were told to open the window which resulted in my husband getting bitten 17 times by a mosquito and me 10 times not to mention the noise levels.
