My family took the Southern Shore Tour with Donald. The stop to buy conch in the morning was particularly interesting to see. He adapted the tour so that we could help cook lunch, which was wonderfully educational and entertaining. There was never a sense of being rushed or hearing a "canned" presentation. Donald was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions, which were many since we are a family of teachers. Every trip I arrange specialized or private tours, and this rates among the best.
