Alune was an amazing guide. We enjoyed it so much. He was so interesting and joyful during the tour. I loved seeing the interaction with the children and members of the community. It's probably one of the favorite tours I've been on!

This was a very enjoyable visit. Thank you Alune. Everyone was very welcoming - except, perhaps, that one cow who was definitely suspicious of us. The children were like kids world-wide. Hope to see you again Alune.
