                            Gokul, un gestor turístico que ofrece seguridad y resolución

                            Creo que lo principal que Gokul ofrece es seguridad. Se nota que lleva años trabajando en el sector, es una persona sobradamente capaz y su fluidez con el castellano, la resolución a la hora de gestionar, su conocimiento de los recursos de la zona y su capacidad de respuesta ofrecen una garantía para contratar sus servicios..
