Andrew provided a great day for us in Olympia. His bus was brand new and he was so friendly and knowledgable. The best part of the tour was our trip to a local honey farm. Such a great experience. We also stopped at a hotel to visit the beach which had a gorgeous view. Such a great day, my entire party of 10 enjoyed the experience.
