My sister and I had a blast on our day trip to Papallacta through GreenGo Travel. Alik was extremely accommodating in setting up the details of the day, and our driver and guide picked us up promptly in the morning and we had a beautiful, scenic ride to the hot springs followed by a guided hike. Thank you GreenGo travel for being such a great company to work with!
