Invisible Cities Paul and Nathalie were a perfect pairing. They kept us smiling the whole hike while sharing all sorts of information. I was able to take many wonderful postcards while getting to know two very charismatic guides. It was a brilliant experience.

Great tour with Paul and Nathalie going up to the volcano. It was an awesome walk, one that tired me out just watching it, and the view was spectacular! Good information and Paul looks like he lost weight. But, still looks wonderful! I enjoyed learning about the walk up and the sights being shown. Great tour with the two guides.
