Fun Day - Great Shore Excursion
KassB
, Dec 2019
Cannot say enough about Daniel and this shore excursion. Everything was well timed and the day could not have made us feel more special and relaxed! From a tour of downtown Arica, to a wildlife sanctuary, to an anthropological museum, a local (DELICIOUS) lunch, and amazing views - the day was PERFECTION!!!
