  • The weather was really rainy but still a good tour. Guide offered to do it another day when it wasn't raining which wasn't an option for us but appreciated the offer. His vehicle that was used was really old and not very clean.

  • This was a great tour for the afternoon. Our tour guide, Mike, was informative and friendly. Unfortunately, it was raining hard on the day of our tour. Mike offered to reschedule but since we were only here a couple'of days we didn't have time. Due to the rain we missed a couple of places but overall we had a great time. My only hesitation with the tour was the size of the group for the van. There were 8 of us on the tour and the van was a bit crowded. I would totally recommend this tour. Even so, it was a good value for the money.
