Our guide, Juan, was excellent and gave us a wonderful tour. There were 4 of us plus Juan and the vehicle used only held 5 people. We were so crowded in the Car that one person got out and did not go. We have never had a problem like this with any other company.

Dear Ellen Gross, Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry about this. Tangol was not directly responsible. We would like to clarify that in your reservation request we asked for a van. We filed a formal complaint so that it won't happen again. However, we are glad to know that the guide, Juan, did an excellent job of guiding you. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused. We appreciate your comprehension and comments; in this way we improve our services and those of our associates. Best regards, Tangol Travel Agency
