Great date!

It was an incredible experience! The company was very accommodation. Due to hazardous driving conditions we missed the first part of the trip (national park hike) but the company was kind enough to allow us to go to the hotsprings! The pictures don’t do it justice it was a great time!!

This tour was a bit disappointing. We were actually expecting much more than what we got. It only consisted of us walking down a trail, reaching a viewpoint and returning back to the van. The price we paid was way too high for just that. We didn't even get the Hot Springs Option. Do not get me wrong... the tour guide and driver were SUPER nice and knowledgeable but I would not recommend this tour to anyone. Heads up: You can actually just pay the park entrance fee and walk the trail on your own. You do not need a guide. Once I found this out, I was upset.

Good trip but was hoping to get a bit closer the Volcano. Guide was great and went out of the way to show us wildlife. He even took amazing pictures for us. Over all good trip...
