This trip could not have been any better than it was. Inri kept us well informed way before we arrived and was patient and kind as the nine of us kept changing our minds in deciding what tours we wanted to take. We needed two vehicles and our guides and drivers that Inri provided for us were so accommodating. As for Riversong, it's so beautiful and inviting that it's hard to put into words. The food was outstanding and even with snacks and wine provided in our rooms, Inri came by with a plate of cheeses and crackers for us as we celebrated our last night in paradise. Riversong is beautiful all on it's own with everything you could ever need, but the staff made you feel like it was your house and you were part of a family. We would love to go back just to visit the good friends that we made as well as the beautifully appointed guest house. We have traveled a lot, but this place was special and will always be remembered.
