Our tour was Awesome! All because of Donna. She met us at our cruise ship and returned us there. Donna is very personable and knowledgeable, and if she doesn't know or isn't sure about something she says so. We had communicated our "Got To See" list weeks prior. Donna was awesome, getting us to all the areas she wanted us to see and still get the things in we wanted to see. We were never rushed, allowed all the time we wanted at each site and was close by if we needed anything or had questions. Awesome!
