A Recent Review of this guide

My husband and I took a 4 day long tour with Cathy! It was one of the best trips we have ever taken! Cathy was SO accommodating to ALL of our needs. She made sure we were happy and she was full of information. She spoke great English and had an awesome sense of humor. We were always laughing and saw EVERYTHING on our list. She was very punctual and handled any task we through at her and always with a smile. Felt very close to her by the end of the trip. HIGHLY recommend Cathy. We miss her already!
