Great insight in the local practices and the differences between different religions. Especially interesting due to informal character and wealth of information of our guide Joan from the Treasure Rock Inn.

I'm sorry sir. But you commented on the wrong review with regards to the fees the guides are charging. In my review, i did not write any negative remarks about the prices charged by the guides. :)
