Lucia showed up in a nice Mercedes van and took us to all the interesting places and we had a nice day with her. Her English was excellent but she wasn't overly knowledgable about the area. We especially liked the free art museum. If it wasn't so hard to get here, this is an area that would be fun to... More

We booked an excursion to Bodega Garzon (formerly Experience Garzon?) through Excellence Tourismo, and I was extremely satisfied and impressed. Excellent customer service from my first email inquiry to the ease of booking and payment online to the wonderful driver and transit to and from Garzon.

Well organised tour, schedule appropriate, guide knowledgeable and accommodating to our requests and needs. Driver very pleasant. The whole process from booking to the end was straight forward and easy. Would recommend. Much better than doing a ships tour with a hoard of people.

A good time was had by all 8 of us. Although I shouldn't speak for the others we had plenty of room in our air conditioned van. Our guide was knowledgeable of the area.
