Willard is a pro, and his tour was outstanding. He knows Great Zimbabwe extremely well, and he's very good at making it come alive. The car trip is long but definitely worth it. This is an extraordinary unique place in the world, and having Willard there was worth every penny, as we would have had little idea of the significance of what we were seeing without his guidance. Highly recommend!
