    EXCELENTE The Great Trekkers Safaris
    Nosotros acabamos de llegar de Uganda y realmente ha sido un viaje increíble de 12 días. Después de contactar con varias agencias locales y leer muchas opiniones muy positivas en internet nos decidimos por The Great Trekkers Safaris, ellos tienen un precio muy competitivo respecto a las otras agencias y nuestra experiencia insuperable.
    Desde un primer momento, el contacto con Juan (delegado y representante en España de la agencia) fue muy satisfactorio, con muy buena comunicación y preocupándose en todo momento para que nuestro viaje fuera perfecto.

    En cuanto a la organización del viaje, en nuestra opinión, fue impecable desde el momento en el que nos recogieron en el aeropuerto de Entebbe hasta que nos dejaron en el mismo aeropuerto.
    Con Makoma de guía y a Patrick de chófer-guía, estupendo conductor que demostró una gran habilidad conduciendo. Con ellos nos reímos mucho y nos lo pasamos genial durante todo el itinerario. La experiencia fue muy buena con ambos!!!
    Tanto Makoma como Patrick siempre atentos en todo, se adaptan a tu gusto y te hacen un viaje para el recuerdo, un viaje perfecto. Han sido unos profesionales y unas personas magníficas, se ha cumplido de sobra todas las expectativas en todos los sentidos. La atención al cliente estupenda !!

    Uganda enamora por sus gentes y su naturaleza salvaje.
    Nosotros hemos disfrutado mucho, y cada día que pasa valoramos más lo bonito y espectacular que ha sido este viaje, sin ninguna duda, un súper viaje!!

    Gracias Juan y Rogers! Muchísimas gracias Patrick y Makoma, vosotros habéis conseguido que el viaje haya sido maravilloso, perfecto, grandioso, espléndido y difícilmente superable!!!

    Muchas gracias también, a las opiniones de los foreros que han sido de una gran ayuda
