  1. We had a wonderful tour with Nikolina Rupcic (email ninanapkin@gmail.com). We paid 50 euros for the two of us for the tour. We started the tour in Split and then hopped on the #1 bus to Salona the ancient capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. She is full of information. I would highly recommend her.
  2. We had a wonderful tour with one of Edgardo Calaio's group of tour guides December 28, 2012 in Ushuaia Argentina. We were a group of 14 from the Star Princess. Our guide had a well prepared speech. He passed around items/pictures during the bus ride. The small bus was very comfortable with an aisle down the middle of the bus for easy ingress and egress. Any walking we did I would rate as easy. The National Park is a must to see. Even though we were there on a rainy day it is a beautiful park. I would definitely recommend Edgar guides. You can contact him via his email edgardocalaio@gmail.com.

  4. Manta Ecuador December 15, 2012. I arranged a private tour with Narwell EcoTuristico. The tour was favorably priced. The guides were knowlegdable and very friendly. The company has several tours to choose from but I selected the Fish market and the archeological site Cerro Jaboncillo, (little Machu Pichu). The fish market opens at 5:00 AM so be sure to arrive early. This is the largest fish market I have ever visited. The market specializes in Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Swordfish mostly for the commercial purposes. Next door you can see fishing vessels in various stages of the construction process. They even rework older vessels to extend their useful life. Cerro Jaboncillo is an archeological site dating from 1700 B.C to 900 A.D. The site continues to be excavated and pottery shards can be found everywhere just lying on the ground. Because of this, a park guide will interpret the archeological remains, flora and fauna while guiding the visitor through the village. A musuem will be constructed in the future housing the important relics from the site. While the dirt and mud road is brutal, it is worth the effort. I would recommend this company to any passenger stopping in Manta. The email is iwona.narwell@gmail.com. The web site is http://www.ecuador-discover.com.
