The tour is definitely worth doing. Be prepared for a strenuous hike for those that don't do it on a normal basis. It took about 45 mins to get to the top. And out guide was helpful each step of the way. Even ensured we got some awesome pictures along the way. It rained the day before our tour, which proved to make a less than desirable ride down. The sand has washed away from the rain, so it was mostly rocks. We would only go about 10 yards before the rocks would over take the board and bring you to a halt. Took us almost 10 mins to get down, and it was very frustrating. Cause there's no climbing back to the top to do it again. It's one and done. But I place fault only on mother nature and not the tour or the guide. Hopefully you will be able to plan around the rain, or just go during their dry season. But I would recommend everyone do it.
The tour guide was awesome and it was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is a steep climb though so be prepared.
