A Recent Review of this tour

Kristen took us on the most amazing tour. Every place we went was beautiful beyond words. We traveled to spots we never would find in a tour book and each was magnificent. It was a pleasure spending the day with Kristen and her friend James. They were wonderful company and great fun. It was truly a fabulous day all around and if there was a rating greater than 5 stars I would happily give it.
