A Recent Review of this tour

Ginette was amazing! Completely tailored our experience to what we were interested in. She was very informative and friendly. We truly enjoyed our day. She also gave great tips to follow up on for our next trip. I would recommend doing this early in your vacation so you could follow through on her tips.
