A Recent Review of this tour

Chris was waiting for us when we got off the ship (in the rain) with a smile, and was an absolute charm to be with for the day. He took us a couple of places you don't get to see on a hop-on/hop-off tour, and knew JUST where to park to allow us to see some things! His knowledge of the area, and the history, was incredible. Can't forget to mention his great sense of humour!!!
