A Recent Review of this tour

Matthew did a day tour for our friends/coworkers in the city from Kenya and was fabulous!! We arranged for it remotely and he was so diligent in communicating and making arrangements prior to the visit and then did an excellent tour for them! Highly recommend him, thanks so much!!
