Our tour guide was a fountain of knowledge and beyond friendly. My family and I were gifted with an experience we will never forget. Our tour guide, not only stopped at the check list places but he made sure to stop at the best spots to get that once in a lifetime picture and he never rushed us. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling with a small family or group of friends. It was really one of the best ways to tour, no waiting on other people or rushing. It was a pleasant day and one we still talk about a year later.
