Some vendor at the market may convince you to buy their goods at "tourist price". Please feel free to negotiate for the price you feel comfortable. You don't need to buy any goods, actually.
Everything went great but we think that you would be way ahead of your competition if you talk English a little better.
Overall with the price it is really worth thank you for the awesome trip
The departure from the hotel was at 6:15 am. Our hotel opened breakfast at 6:30 am, so we had to leave it without having breakfast. It would have been nice if the guide or driver had let us buy a coffee or something to eat before leaving town. Or at least, they would have given us a bottle of water (on other tours they do) Another simple option would have been to leave the hotel half an hour later, so that we would have had time for having breakfast. On the other hand, the guide's English level was not very good and he wasn't quite understood and the driver didn't speak It much either. The driver was driving a little fast The rest was good, schedules were fulfilled and the boat rides were good.
A good moment and experience !
