Miles H – June 2018

We really enjoyed the Toucan House and Jungle Splash Eco Tours. Robert and Nadir were excellent guides and really made us feel comfortable and at ease. Robert’s knowledge of that area is beyond impressive. I would recommend staying at the Toucan House and going on any of Robert’s excursions. It was the best!
