Hello Jesse, What strong words you use, I am quite shocked by your review, which describes an event that has mostly nothing to do with our agency. I've just spent the whole afternoon talking to the owner of the transport company we work with for...More

The arrangement(food, camping tent...)was excellent. David and Marrie was very helpful and the guide took us to detour for more gorgeous scenery with our consents. It was a wonderful experience and I would hire this company in the future for other trekking.
