      Having written a review a few days ago and was not able to get it published.
      They charge you double than the standard rate if you book through a local company.
      Please look for other websites as the tour will only cost your ARS4000= USD $100.
      I know they have to make money but this is a rip off. Even worse was that they are trying to block my comment.
      When you are on board, beware of the photographers as they will ask you to pay for a different rate after you agreed on the prices at the first place and have the photos taken.
      If you dare to block my comment again, I will go through other channel to complain on you
