Hello,

I'm interested in learning how many hours of hiking this trip involves and how many hours of traveling by car? I'm more interested in hiking than sightseeing by car, so I'm hoping this tour has at least 2 hours of hiking or more.

Thanks,
Henry Heilbroner

Dear Henry,

The name of the tour is incorrect. Our team is working to change the name of this tour package. If you want to do hiking, it will be 2 hours approximately. Later, you will enjoy rappel activity on the same tour. We will update this tour asap.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. Thank you very much for your understanding.


Best Regards,
Jason
Customer Service Rep
