A Recent Review of this tour

We planned our tour over 6 months ago. Josh was very responsive and helpful in the planning process. Being picked up at our vacation rental in a comfortable van was a real plus. Josh was very considerate and professional throughout the day. On our own, we would never have been able to see as much as we did. Despite the closure of the Park, it was an amazing tour.
