Very interesting hike and commentary by the guide
Dear Sir/Madam, That was not a sunny day but a froggy day. Luckily not windy and no rain throughout the whole hiking hours. The tour guide and the coach were very nice. And the eco-guide explained the rocks and the volcano things in details, which arouse our interest as well. The hiking route is a bit difficult than I expected. And I am lucky to get an umbrella to rely on when I was walking down at some slippy slope path. I would suggest one of the guide or coach can help in the middle of our team. So as to ensure everyone are ok and able to walk through the whole trip. My experience is good and I would like to thank to Jan, Hannah and Kenneth for their good job. Thank you very much Ann
Everything was terrific! My only complaint is that the Island Guide (male, subcontractor) stopped too many times to give long talks. I personally do not like stopping and standing for long periods of time. Plus, he veered off into detailed geology which was a bit much. Ithink that the trip was 45 minutes longer than it needed to be. I would have preferred to keep hiking or stopping for a picnic or just heading back. The Outdoor HK employees were very good and nice.
