  • While the scenery was lovely and the guide was friendly, I wouldn't recommend this trip. Way, WAY too expensive for what you get. It's not worth it in the slightest. Instead, I would recommend a self guided tour. The trails are well marked, and it's MUCH easier on your bank account.

  • Great day. Beautiful park. Great guide.
