    Very organized day from pick-up to drop-off. Lunch provided was excellent, our tour guide was exceptional!! This was the second time this year that I had taken this same tour. Learned more this time around with different insightful historic facts than last time because our tour guide was enthusiastic about teaching...very much appreciated!
