We really enjoyed this trip. The Tigre Delta and the boat trip was extremely interesting and our stop at San Isidro to see the Cathedral was also great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
The tour guide was excellent with a knowledge of several languages and a knowledge of the tour and brought to our attention many details. That is why we go with a tour rather on ourselves. Her English was great.
Its was okay, but make no mistake, you dont actually get off the river barge.
