Who should NOT take this tour?
We made a list of 7 people who are not welcome. #1 says: “People who want everything organized perfectly from day one to the final departure.” This tour visit markets and other public places, which means it can be chaotic. We bike through a capital city of 6 million people and traffic can slow us down. Expect the unexpected.’
